Super Eagles 2018 World Cup qualifying group opponents Algeria have appointed former Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac as their new national coach.
The 62-year-old Serbian is the long-term replacement for Christian Gourcuff who stood down from the position in April.
The Algerian FA confirmed he had signed a contract on Sunday.
The Algeria FA also stated that Rajevac, who took Ghana to the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, would be in Algeria in mid-July, when he is set to be officially introduced to the press.
No details of Rajevac’s contract were revealed but he is likely to be in charge during Algeria’s bid to reach the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
He will also guide Algeria at the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Gabon next year.
Rajevac took Ghana to the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
