According to reports in France, the 50 year-old agreed to become coach of the Green Falcons.

“Just days after leaving his post as the head of the Moroccan national team following a disappointing early knockout round AFCON exit, the individual in question is understood to have yesterday signed a deal to become the new manager of the Saudi Arabian national team,”  French reporter Mohamed Toubache-ter said.

However, the Saudi FF have not confirmed Renard’s appointment.

He has worked with 6 different teams including the Zambia and Ivory Coast national teams with whom he won AFCON titles in the last eight years.
