French national, Alain Giresse has been named at the helm of the Senegal national football team. The 60-year-old has finalized a two-year contract with the country’s Football Federation.
His main task will be to secure Senegal’s ticket for the 2014 world cup in Brazil. Giresse takes over from Joseph Koto who was fired last year after failing to qualify the Teranga Lions for the 2013 Orange Africa cup of nations in South Africa. It should be noted that While waiting for the appointment of a new coach, the team was temporarily managed by Demba Ramata Ndiaye.
