Frenchman Corentin Martins named head coach of Libya
Martins will prepare the Libyan national side in their qualifiers for the 2023 TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations with the draw scheduled to take place on April 19
The Libyan Football Federation has appointed Frenchman Corentin Martins as the new coach of their senior national team.
The 52-year-old, who is experienced in African football, agreed a one-year contract to coach the Mediterranean Knights.
He was appointed on Monday to replace Spanish trainer Javier Clemente.
Martins will have Moustapha Fall as his assistant having already worked with him in the same position when he led the Mourabitounes.
The Frenchman led Mauritania to qualify for their first appearance at the AFCON in 2019 before successfully taking them to the next edition of the tournament.
However he was sacked following the side’s inability to qualify for the 2022 World Cup playoffs.
