Luis Fernandez Interested In Coaching Morocco
Now that Morocco is officially out of the running for a 2010 World Cup place, the North African kingdom is abuzz with talk over who could possibly be successful in leading the Atlas Lions to future glory. One possibility that has been cited by Mountakhab.net and other sources is Luis Fernandez.
It is not the first time he has been linked with such a move and the well travelled manager commented on the possibility on French radio station RMC.
“It’s kind that they still think of me in the Maghreb. If tomorrow I would have [the opportunity] to coach Morocco it’s not something that would displease me. On the contrary, it’s one of the big teams in the Maghreb [region]. There’s a lot of potential, with players plying their trade in big championships,” he explained.
“It’s true that Morocco are going through a difficult period. I haven’t had direct contact but as I’ve already said, I wouldn’t be against coaching a national team.”
The current caretaker coach of Morocco, Hassan Moume, is not expected to be offered a permanent position after presiding over the latest failure of the squad when they travelled to Gabon but put on a pitiful display and were on the wrong end of a 3-1 scoreline.
