The Sudanese Football Association have appointed 60-year-old former Togo boss Hubert Velud as the new coach of the Sudanese national team.

Hubert Velud succeeds Zdravko Logarusic who came to the end of his contract in December, and the contract was not renewed.

The former coach of TP Mazembe and Etoile Sahel takes over the Sudan job, two weeks after leaving Algerian club JS Kabylie.

Sudan currently lye third in Group C of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers, three points behind the Black Stars of Ghana who top the group.

The Falcons of Jediane will face Ghana away from home in Velud’s first game in charge, in March.

South Africa and São Tomé and Principe complete the Group, with all four teams vying for a place in the tournament to be staged in Cameroon.

Hubert Velud led Togo to the 2010 AFCON in Angola and was part of the horrific Cabinda ambush.

He has a wealth of experience in coaching on the African continent. Hassania Agadir, ES Setif, USM Alger and CS Constantine are all regulars in Africa’s club competitions, and the Frenchman has had spells at the helm of all of them.

Sudan are in Group I of the second round of 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, alongside Morocco, Guinea-Bissau and Guinea.
