Sfaxien in talks with Benzarti after CAF Cup loss

Mahmoud Elassal, Sunday 5 Dec 2010

Tunisian team Sfaxien is in talks with former Esperance coach Faouzi Benzarti to replace Pierre Lechantre starting January after the team’s defeat in the Confederation Cup final on Saturday.

Benzarti won't be jobless for long

According to Tunisian daily newspaper Al-Sabah, Sfaxien officials contacted Faouzi Benzarti right after their 3-2 defeat to Moroccan FUS Rabat with the aim of replacing Pierre Lechantre.

However, Benzarti, the 60-year old tactician, is reportedly considering his options as he has many offers on the table coming from Egyptian outfits Masry and the United Arab Emirates team.

Benzarti has just been sacked by Esperance after conceding a 6-1 humiliating defeat (on aggregate) to Congolese giants TP Mazembe in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League final.
