Herve Renard attracts widespread interest despite 2018 FIFA World Cup elimination with Morocco

Posted: 27 June 2018 Time: 15:30

Herve Renard, who was previously linked with the Bafana Bafana job has refused to rule out leaving Morocco after their 2018 FIFA World Cup elimination.

The Atlas Lions were eliminated after taking just one point from their three Group B outings, but provided on-lookers in Russia real entertainment with some eye-catching displays.

After an unlucky defeat to Iran, Renard's side were edged by European champions Portugal through a Cristiano Ronaldo strike - followed by an impressive display in the 2-2 draw with Spain.

Speaking to journalists after the match against La Roja, Renard refused to confirm that he'd remain with the North African side - as Algeria and Egypt have reportedly contacted the Frenchman over their recent head coaching vacancies.

"I arrived here two years ago, and I would like to thank the Federation and [Morocco's technical director] Nasser Larguet, in particular, for everything," he said in the official FIFA post-match press conference.

"We'll have time to discuss the future later," he added. "For now, let's enjoy the World Cup, and the great football."
