 "The ad hoc committee, after consulting several technicians, adopted a short-list of five coaches. The choice was made of Mr. Georges Leekens to lead the national team. This choice was approved unanimously by members of the federal office, " wrote the FAF in a statement.

He succeeds Serbian Milovan Rajevac who resigned after the 1-1 draw against Cameroon on 9 October in a World Cup 2018 qualifier. 

During his career, Leekens has coached Anderlecht, Trabzonspor, Lokeren, Belgium, Tunisia and Algeria, whom he worked briefly for in 2004 before leaving for family reasons.
