Nouzaret is new Guinea coach

Nouzaret was in charge of the Ivory Coast in 2004

Frenchman Robert Nouzaret has been named as the new coach of Guinea.

He succeeds his compatriot Patrice Neveu who resigned two months ago.

Neveu quit after the west African country made a disappointing start to the 2008 African Nations Cup qualifying competition, drawing at home to Algeria and losing away to Cape Verde Islands.

Nouzaret's immediate task will be to steer Guinea to qualification for the 2008 Nations Cup to be held in Ghana.

Guinea, quarter-finalists in the 2004 and 2006 editions of the biennial Nations Cup, travel to Gambia in late March and another defeat would virtually end hopes of qualifying for the tournament in Ghana.

Nouzaret, 63, is no stranger to west Africa having coached Ivory Coast for 18 months from mid-2002.

He also worked with leading Algerian club Mouloudia Alger.
