Ivory Coast have appointed Herve Renard as their new coach on a two year deal.

The Frenchman’s first task will be to lead Ivory Coast to qualify for the African Nations Cup in Morocco next year.

Renard, who led Zambia to the Nations Cup title in 2012, replaces Sabri Lamouchi in charge of the continent’s second ranked team.

Lamouchi’s contract was not renewed after the Ivorians failed to get past the first round at the World Cup.
