Africa: Comoros Name Zerdouk As New National Team Coach
Written by on March 9, 2022
Frenchman Younes Zerdouk has been named as the permanent coach of the Comoros national team following the departure of their former trainer.
The 48-year-old, of Moroccan descent, was appointed on Monday by the Comoros Football Federation (FFC) just days after the exit of former coach Amir Abdou.
Abdou resigned as the coach of Comoros two weeks ago after eight years in charge of the Africa Cup of Nations debutantes, who reached the last 16 of the Cameroon tournament.
The FFC took the decision not to severely disrupt the backroom staff following Abdou exit by appointing Zerdouk who has been the assistant coach since 2017.
