Herve Renard has been named the new head coach of Morocco after being presented at a media conference on Tuesday in Rabat following the departure of Badou Zaki.
The 47-year-old had been linked with the Kazakhstan job but has agreed a deal with Morocco which is due to last until the 2018 World Cup, after Zaki left his post by mutual consent last week.
The Frenchman has won two Africa Cup of Nations titles – first as Zambia coach in 2012, and with Cote d’Ivoire three years later. He also coached Angola. He was named the coach of the year at the 2015 CAF awards after he clinched the Africa Cup of Nations with Ivory Coast last year,
His first competitive game in charge will be in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying against Cape Verde Islands on March 22.
