Hervé Renard wanted to manage Egypt – Hazem Emam claims

Egyptian Football Association (EFA) member Hazem Emam has claimed that Hervé Renard was interested in coaching the Egyptian national team.

During Renard’s time in Africa, he was one of the most sought-after managers on the continent drawing attention from the biggest nations including Egypt.

The Frenchman won the Africa Cup of Nations title with Zambia back in 2012 before claiming the title with Ivory Coast three years later.

He also guided Morocco to the 2018 World Cup in Russia after 20 years of absence from the competition as well as two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.

Renard also proved his success outside of Africa as he led Saudi Arabia to the current World Cup in Qatar and even beat Lionel Messi’s Argentina 2-1 in their opening game.


Speaking about the 54-year-old, Hazem Emam revealed he was interested in taking charge of the Egyptian national team but a move did not materialise three years ago.

“Vahid Halilhodžić told me that Hervé Renard loves Egypt, but at that time he was coaching the Moroccan national team after the 2018 World Cup,” Emam told ON Time Sports.

“One of the mediators told me that Renard wants to coach Egypt, but it wasn’t right for me to hold talks with him while he is in charge of another team like Morocco at the time.”

“I spoke with Renard a whille ago but I did not discuss with him coaching Egypt and he didn’t tell me that he would manage another team after the World Cup because he currently has a job with Saudi Arabia,” he added.
