Joint coaches for Tunisia

Tunisian fans have not had much to shout about lately
Tunisia have appointed joint coaches to take charge of the team at the World Cup finals in Japan and South Korea.

Ammar Souyah and Khemaies Laabidi, named interim joint coaches following the departure of French boss Henri Michel, have now been given a permanent role till after the World Cup.

The news comes after Saturday's farewell ceremony to Michel given in his honour by the Tunisian Football Federation.

Working conditions

The north African country's football chiefs are expected to officially name the coaching duo's permanent role on Tuesday.

Michel resigned in controversial circumstances, citing difficult working conditions after Souayah was appointed as his assistant.

Souayah was in charge of the team for the uninspiring 0-0 draw against Norway in a pre-World Cup friendly Tunis last Wednesday.

Tunisia play Russia, Belgium and Japan in the first round of the World Cup.
