Post Russia: Hervé Renard clarifies future with Morocco

Rumoured to be in talks with Egyptian football officials as well as those from Algeria, Hervé Renard says he is still at his post in Morocco.

The Frenchman led the Atlas Lions to the 2018 FIFA World Cup but saw his team crashing out in the group stage, although his work has been widely applauded by the North Africans.

Since their return from Russia, almost all the tabloids in Morocco have been running stories of an imminent departure of Renard from the team.

Egypt national team, whose coach Hector Cuper recently left the outfit, are on the lookout for a replacement and reports say Renard is high on their wish list.

“For now, the situation is clear. I have a contract with Morocco that runs until 2022,” Renard said on Tuesday.

“Anything can happen in football. Sometimes you have FA administrators who are not happy with their coach and want a replacement, or a coach having the desire to move on.

“For now, we have not got to that stage. We shall see what happens in the coming weeks. But for now, nobody can speak in my name,” he said.

The two-time Africa Cup of Nations winning coach, with Zambia and Ivory Coast, joined the Lions in February 2016, qualifying the team to the World Cup for the first time since 1998.
