Rabah Saadane appointed as Algeria’s technical director
Algerian Football Federation have announced the appointment of manager Rabah Saadane as the Desert Warriors’ new technical director.
This comes few days following the sacking of Spanish manager Lucas Alcaraz, who have failed to guide Algeria to the World Cup after only gaining one point from five matches and lying at the bottom of their group, which included Cameroon, Nigeria and Zambia.
The Algerian Football Federation announced the appointment of Saadane on Sunday stating that they have agreed on all the details of the contract and the objectives to be achieved in the short, medium and long term.
The 71-year-old coach had previously guided the Algerian team at the 1986 World Cup. He also managed to lead the Desert Warriors to qualify for the 2010 World Cup for the first time in 24 years and made it to the semi-final of the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations.
Saadane resigned after a 1-1 home draw with Tanzania in the 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
