Former Ghana assistant coach Herve Renard, who led Zambia to the African Nations Cup title in 2012, was on Thursday named as Ivory Coast coach.

The Frenchman takes  over  of Africa’s second-highest ranked team from Sabri Lamouchi, whose contract was not renewed after the Ivorians failed to get past the first round at the World Cup in Brazil last month.

The 45-year-old Renard was chosen ahead of compatriot Frederic Antonetti and Portuguese coach Manuel Jose on a final shortlist of candidates.

Renard left Zambia after last year’s World Cup qualifiers and took over at Ligue 1 club Sochaux but was unable to save them from relegation in May.

    Right move. I have lost faith and confidence in AA’s ability to manage the black stars. I have lost faith and confidence in the present GFA and entire operational structure of the GFA. If the GFA continues to be run only by these clueless and visionless club owners in Ghana as the structure is now, then our football will be eradicated from the face of the earth for good. Unless the structure permits non club owners to also head the GFA as its done in Europe and other parts of the world we will not see improvement in our football. Our club owners are brainless.

    He couldn’t qualify Zambia to the WC, Ghana beat Zambia where he was the coach , he then went to French league and his team was relegated better yet some ppl are commenting that he is good , why then didn’t he qualify Zambia or saved sochaux from bn relegated? Ghanaians talk too much , Praising a coach whose team was relegated and Kwasi Appiah beat his Zambia to qualify for the World Cup or mayb just bcos he’s white and Ghanaians like anybody as long as he’s not one of our own.
