Frenchman Paul Le Guen will succeed compatriot Claude LeRoy as the coach of Oman’s national team, local media reported on Sunday.

Le Guen coached Cameroon at the 2010 World Cup and has agreed on a two-year deal, filling the void left after the sacking of LeRoy in January following the team’s poor showing in the Gulf Cup and failure to qualify for the Asian Cup.

The former Paris St Germain, Olympique Lyon and Rangers coach will start work on 27 June as Oman build up for the first leg of their World Cup qualifier against either Mongolia or Myanmar on 23 July.

The Oman Football Association had talks with Egyptian tactician Hassan Shehata last week after he quit the Pharaohs job due to 2012 African Cup of Nations disqualifying.
