March 14, 2019 - 20:57

TEHRAN – Moroccan current coach Herve Renard has reportedly reached an agreement with Iran football federation to take charge of Team Melli.

The sources close to Iran football federation president Mehdi Taj say the 50-year-old French coach will be introduced as new head coach of Team Melli.

Renard has recently announced the list of Morocco national football team for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, scheduled to be played in Egypt from June 21 to July 19.

Team Melli are without a coach since parting company with Carlos Queiroz in late January.

Iran didn’t extend the Portuguese coach’s contract after he failed to bring an end to Team Melli’s 43-year title drought in the AFC Asian Cup.

Renard attended the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in the UAE in January, fueling speculation that he will continue his work in an Asian football team.
