Morocco’s football lovers have still not digested the Atlas Lions’ fiasco at the AFCON 2019. Everyone expected the national team to lift the trophy, but the team was unable to make it past the Round of 16.
Hervé Renard’s days are now numbered. Which coach will he take over the reins of the Lions? This is the question that currently haunts the minds of Moroccan supporters.
Several names are on the FRMF table. These are Houssin Ammouta, who won the Champions League with Wydad in 2017, French technician Laurent Blanc and Bosnian Vahid Halilodzic. At least that is what the daily newspaper Al Massae has said.
It should be noted that Hervé Renard will indeed return the apron. This was stated by sports journalists on the programme “Saât LCAN” (CAN Time), the programme broadcast on Medi1 TV. The latter reported that FRMF and Renard eventually reached an agreement. The Frenchman will neither resign nor be dismissed (no compensation to be received or paid). An amicable divorce, says the same source. He added that this separation will be recorded next Saturday.
