Former Zambia and Ivory Coast AFCON winning coach Hervé Renard has hinted on his return to Ghana some day to coach the senior national team.
The former Lille and Sochaux gaffer had his first working stint in Africa as an assistant to then Ghana coach Claude Le Roy at AFCON 2008.
His best moment on the continent came when he lead Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire to win the Nations cup in 2012 and 2015, respectively.
He went on to coach Morocco at the 2017 and 2019 AFCONs and the 2018 World Cup but things didn’t workout for him on the North African soil.
In his live video chat on twitter with Juliet Bawuah, the French said he needs to come to take another challenge with Ghana.
“Yes, I have to come back one day to help one country [Ghana] to win, and that country hasn’t won it for a long time.
It will be a fantastic challenge but at the moment you can’t talk about it.
In 2008 when I was the assistant coach, Ghana was 14th in the world and I think it will be a very good option for me. ” he said
He further added that Ghana was the better side during the 2015 AFCON final just that his side was lucky.
“The final in 2015 between [Cote d’Ivoire] and Ghana, I have never watched that game since.
I only got to watch the game some three weeks ago and I think Ghana was the better side.
Ghana played better and I think we were a bit lucky. ” he added
Renard is currently the head coach of Saudi Arabia after leaving Morocco due to a disappointing Afcon campaign in Egypt last year.
Ghana has not won Afcon since 1982.
