I won’t leave Morocco for another African nation – Renard

Morocco coach Herve Renard has rejected reports linking him to the Algerian and Egyptian national team jobs.

According to the 49-year-old Frenchman who had declined talking about his future after leading the Atlas Lions to a group stage exit at the Russia World Cup, the rumours only create “trouble” while stating clearly he has no intention of coaching another African nation after Morocco.

“Some people talk about my future in the media to sow the trouble in the Moroccan spirit and if it’s still a little early to know what it will be done.

“One thing is certain: Out of respect of Morocco and all Moroccans I will not leave in any way for another African nation regardless of it. Those who claim it, are wrong,” Renard said via his official Twitter handle Tuesday.

Both Algeria and Egypt recently began the search for new coaches after parting ways with Rabah Madjer and Hector Cuper respectively.

Herve Renard was introduced to African football by Claude Le Roy prior to the 2008 Afcon when he worked in the capacity of a physical trainer in the Ghana backroom. He went on to coach Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire with whom he won the Africa Cup of Nations on separate occasions. Renard also handled the Angola national team.
