Etoile appoint German coach Rohr

Gernot Rohr will be in charge of Etoile for 18 months

German Gernot Rohr has been named as the new coach of Tunisian giants Etoile du Sahel on an 18-month contract.

The 55-year-old joins the Sousse club just one week after they were defeated in the final Confederation Cup.

He takes over from Frenchman Herve Gauthier who had been caretaker for a month following the sacking of Swiss Michel Decastel.

Rohr's contract will keep him at the club until June 2010.

His main task is to revive the side following their defeat to local rivals CS Sfaxien in the final of the continental club competition last week.

The German coach spent most of his coaching career in France where he was in charge of Bordeaux, Creteil, Nice and Ajaccio.

He also managed clubs in his native Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
