Herve Renard resigns from Saudi Arabia role to take over France Women’s NT

Former Ivory Coast and Zambia coach, Hervé Renard has resigned as Saudi Arabia’s boss so he can take over the France women’s team before this year’s Women’s World Cup.

The 54-year-old Frenchman was appointed by Saudi Arabia in July 2019 and led the country to a famous 2-1 win over Argentina at the World Cup in Qatar last year.

The Saudi Arabian Football Federation said it had agreed to terminate Renard’s contract at his request and wished him “every success in his future career.

The French Football Federation sacked Corinne Diacre this month after the captain Wendie Renard, Kadidiatou Diani, and Marie-Antoinette Katoto said they would not play at the World Cup under “the current system”.

France, ranked fifth in the world, will be looking to win its first World Cup at this year’s showpiece, which is being co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia from 20 July to 20 August.
