Morocco have unveiled former Ivory Coast boss Herve Renard as their new manager who will succeed Badou Zaki after he stepped down last week.

The Frenchman Renard is an African Nation Cup double winner, leading Zambia and Ivory Coast to victories in 2012 and 2015 respectively. 

The famous former goalkeeper Zaki, 56, led the Atlas Lions into the group stage of the African qualifiers and to the World Cup as well as inspiring them to lead their group in the Nations Cup Qualifiers (AFCON).

Zaki left by mutual consent on Wednesday after 20 months leading the north Africans.
