Former Algerian national team coach Rabah Saadane has signed a 3-year contract with the Yemen Football Association (FA) to take charge of their national team from this month.

“Saadane signed a 3-year contract to help Yemen in booking a place in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil,” Yemen Football Association head Hamid El-Shebani told Algerian TV program.

The Yemeni FA didn’t disclose the financial details of Saadane’s contract in accordance with the coach's wishes.

The 64-year old tactician had five spells in charge of the Algerian national team: 1981-82, 1985-86, 1999, 2003-04 and 2007-10 when they reached the World Cup in South Africa.

Saadane also steered Algeria to the semi-finals of the 2010 African Cup of Nations, for the first time since 1990.

On September 4 2010, the Algerian FA announced on their official website that Rabah Saadane resigned from leading their team, a day after the disappointing 1-1 draw with Tanzania in the 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifier.
