Esperance fans are unhappy over Benzarti's decision to quit
Libya have appointed former Esperance coach Fawzi Benzarti as the coach of the country's national team.
Benzarti resigned from his post as the coach of the Tunisian side on Friday after just one match in charge.
He signed a three-year contract to coach Libya.
"My main task is to guide Libya reach the finals of the World Cup in South Africa in 2010," Benzarti said.
The veteran Tunisian coach refused to comment on Libya's chances of qualifying for the 2008 Nations Cup.
Libya are currently in second in Group Ten of the qualifiers with seven points, just one point behind leaders DR Congo.
Meanwhile, Esperance officials have expressed disgust over Benzarti's decision to quit his post after only one game in charge.
"This was a very bad timing from Benzarti to quit his post," Esperance president Aziz Zouhir said.
Benzarti succeeded Frenchman Jacky Dugueperoux last month.
He led Esperance to their 2-0 defeat against Hilal of Sudan in the Champions League last week.
Arabi Zawawi has been appointed on a caretaker basis and will be in charge of the club's crucial away game against holders Ahly of Egypt next week.
