Guinea get new coach
Michel Dussuyer
Dussuyer is a former goalkeeper
Frenchman Michel Dussuyer has been named as the new manger of the Sylli Nationale by the Guinean Football Federation.

The job is the first coaching post for the 43-year-old Dussuyer, who has never handled a club or national team.

He was, however, technical director of the Cannes Football Academy in France.

Best remembered in France as goalkeeper for Cannes, where he played alongside a young Zinedine Zidane, Dussuyer also played for Nice.

His first match in charge will be against Liberia in a Nations Cup qualifier on Sunday.

Dussuyer told BBC Sport Online that he knows many of the Guinean foreign-based players and that they were good enough to beat Liberia in Conakry.

But he admitted the match is not going to be easy and said that the fans should not expect much from him, as he has only been in charge of the team for four days.

The French coach added that his contract with Guinea would run for a year and half, with qualification for the 2004 African Nations Cup being his main task.
