French side Lille, the employers of Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, have named Herve Renard as their new coach.
Renard who won the Africa Cup of Nations with Zambia and Côte d'Ivoire has been handed a three-year deal at the club.
He will be joined by his current assistant Patrice Beaumelle in Lille on a deal which runs until 2018, the club said.
Lille president Michel Seydoux said club officials had been "won over by how his ideas fit in with Lille's plans, along with his desire to join us to write another page in our history".
Renard first stint in Ligue 1 was with Sochaux during the 2013/2014 season where they failed to avoid relegation to Ligue 2.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
