Herve Renard named new France manager ahead of Women's World Cup
Herve Renard has been appointed as the France women's national team's new head coach until 2024.
The French Football Federation confirmed on Thursday that they have appointed Herve Renard as the new manager, only four months before the Women’s World Cup.
Renard resigned from his position as Saudi Arabia's national team head coach on Wednesday. He took the country to the 2022 World Cup, where they beat eventual champions Argentina 2-1 in the opening game.
After the defeat to Bolivia in a friendly match on Tuesday, Renard said that he felt he had taken the team as far as he could.
“I think I did the maximum with the team,”
“I can’t reach another level so I prefer to be honest with everybody. Thank you again, it was a fantastic time.”
Renard also has managed the national teams of Morocco, Ivory Coast, and Zambia, as well as brief club stints at Sochaux and Lille.
France women's team recently sacked head coach Corinne Diacre after a number of players, including captain Wendie Renard, said they would not play at the World Cup “under the current system” and they demanded change. It remains to be seen whether players will return to the team for the World Cup under Renard.
France will face Colombia in a friendly on 7 April and Canada on 11 April. France is in Group F alongside Brazil, Jamaica, and Panama. The Women’s World Cup begins on July 20.
