Former France national team head coach Raymond Domenech has been appointed the new handler Nantes that parade Super Eagles winger Moses Simon.
Domenech who led France to second place at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, takes over with Nantes in 16th place after 17 games.
The 68-year-old – who will need special permission to take up the post because he is over 65 – replaces Christian Gourcouff who was sacked three weeks ago.
He will be the 15th coach since Waldemar Kita became president of the club in 2007.
Domenech last led a French top flight team between 1988 and 1993.
He was in charge of the squad for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. The campaign descended into farce after players refused to attend a training session.
The team eventually crashed out in the group stage of the 2010 World Cup.
Since leaving the France job, Domenech has been a football pundit on French television.
He attended Nantes’ 3-0 defeat at Lyon on Wednesday night’s which allowed the hosts to go top of Ligue 1 on goal difference ahead of Lille.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
