The Algerian Football Federation have announced as the Desert Warriors’ new manager.

The fresh decision comes days after sacked their Spanish manager Lucas Alcaraz on Wednesday. Madjer and his staff will be officially presented to the press on Thursday in the national team’s technical center.

The Algerian Football Federation have agreed terms on the contract that will be signed on Thursday. The former Porto star will get the chance to speak about his future plans for the national team after the Desert Warriors became confirmed absentees from the upcoming World Cup in Russia after the shocking results in the qualifiers.

Taking over the Algeria job is not a novelty for the 58-year-old manager. Madjer became Algeria’s coach for the first time in 1993 and had a two-year spell. He was back named as their coach in 2001-2002 and also managed three Qatari teams Al Sadd, El Wakrah and El Rayyan throughout his coaching career.

Algeria national team faced several setbacks under Lucas Alcaraz as they sit fourth in the table of FIFA World Cup qualifications as they gained only one point in their encounter against Cameroon.
