Lemerre to coach Morocco's team

Latest update : 2008-05-13

Former French coach Roger Lemerre will take over Morocco's national team. For now, he is still coaching the Tunisian selection, and will be in charge when Henri Michel's contract with Morocco's football federation ends in June.

 

Frenchman Roger Lemerre has been named as Morocco's new national coach, to take charge on July 1, the Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) said on Tuesday.

 

The 66-year-old, who was Aime Jacquet's assistant when France won the World Cup in 1998 and steered Tunisia to the African Nations Cup title in 2004, flew to Morocco on Monday to discuss contract details with the FRMF.

 

"At the end of the talks, it was agreed that all the conditions are currently met for Lemerre to take over as the new coach beginning July 1, 2008," the FRMF said in a statement.
