2x AFCON winner Renard to make stunning Africa return? | KickOff

Former Morocco manager Herve Renard has confirmed his decision to leave the France women's team, which has reportedly sparked interest from Nigeria.

Former Morocco manager Herve Renard has confirmed his decision to leave the France women’s team, which has reportedly sparked interest from Nigeria.

Two-time Africa Cup of Nations winner Herve Renard could reportedly be set to take charge of one of the continent’s biggest teams. 

The France women’s national team head coach has revealed he will be parting ways with the side after they take part in the Paris Olympic Games 2024 later this year.

The 55-year-old won Africa’s premier continental showpiece with Zambia in 2012 and Ivory Coast in 2015. He then managed Ligue 1 side LOSC Lille, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia, before taking up his current role at Les Bleues.

The French tactician, however, has revealed in an interview with Le Figaro that he is intent on returning to men’s football and taking charge of a side at the 2026 FIFA World Cup after his departure.

The manager stated that he had already made his intentions of leaving the team known to the French Football Federation, adding that the position he currently finds himself in is tough. 

“It’s a difficult job,” Renard said. 

“If I had to be brief, I have in the back of my mind the 2026 World Cup in men’s football; I hope that it will be my third World Cup at the head of a men’s team. These are my personal motivations.”

Per Soccernet.ng, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has earmarked the former USM Alger boss to become the Super Eagles’ new permanent head coach.

The role is currently occupied by Finidi George on an interim basis following the departure of Jose Peseiro, who led the side to the final of AFCON 2023, narrowly losing out on the title to host nation Ivory Coast.
