Official: Morocco appoint Herve Renard as head coach
The Royal Moroccan Football Federation have officially appointed Herve Renard as the head coach for the national team on a three-year deal.
The French coach, who was most recently sacked from his post as Lille manager after 13 games, will succeed former manager Ezzaki Badou.
Ezzaki Badou has been appointed at the helm of the Moroccan team in May 2014. The Moroccan Royal Federation of Football have agreed to terminate the contract by mutual consent citing “bad results, team instability and problems with other members of coaching staff” as the reasons behind the decision.
Morocco’s newly-appointed manager Renard is well known in Africa for being the only manager to win the Africa Cup of Nations with two different teams, Zambia in 2012 and Ivory Coast in 2015. He made a name for himself after leading Zambia to the 2012 AFCON after beating the heavily star-studded Ivory Coast in the final.
Renard has been tasked with qualifying for the semi-finals of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon as well as reaching 2018 the World Cup in Russia.
