The Atlas Lions’ former coach Hervé Renard said that his journey in Africa has ended, denying rumors on his contract with another African team.

«In order to put an end to these rumors and interpretations that talk about my future, and which are not based on facts, I would like to let you know (…) that I will not be managing an African team», he said in a Facebook post Wednesday.

For the record, Hervé Renard no longer the manager of the Moroccan national football team. This is what he announced Sunday, in a statement posted on social media. 

Renard’s resignation came after he helped the Morocco national football team qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. However, the team couldn’t make at the continental competition, after it lost to Benin at the second round.

The French coach who managed before two African teams, namely Cote d’Ivoire and Zambia, started managing the Atlas Lions in February 2016. In 2017, he qualified the team for the Russian 2018 World Cup.

Renard’s contract with the Royal Moroccan Football Federation had been extended, in 2017, until February 2022.
