Morocco national team manager Herve Renard is arguably the most successful European manager to have had several stints with Africa national team after ensuring that Morocco gets a spot in the Russia 2018 World Cup.
The 49-year-old Frenchman qualified Morocco to their fifth World Cup, breaking their 20-year jinx of appearance at the World Cup.
The former Ivory Coast manager won Zambia’s first ever African Cup of Nations in 2012 while in charge of the Chipolopolo, and in 2015 he also helped Ivory Coast win their second Africa Cup of Nations after 23 years.
His feat with Zambia and Ivory Coast makes him the first coach to ever winning the Africa Cup of Nations with two different countries, as no coach either African or non-African has ever achieved such.
Qualifying Morocco for the World Cup gives Joy to the North African side. But ironically, Renard has also inflicted pains to a nation (Ivory Coast) whom he once put smiles on their face when he led them to an AFCON title in 2015.
No Coach, either African or non-African has ever achieved such feats with three different countries in Africa.
