New Angola coach Herve Renard
Frenchman Herve Renard has signed a two-year contract with Angola

Frenchman Herve Renard has been appointed coach of Angola.

Renard replaces Portuguese coach Manuel Jose, who did not renew his contract after hosts Angola were eliminated in the African Cup of Nations quarter-finals in January.

The 41-year-old has signed a two-year contract, two days after quitting his job as Zambia coach.

Burkina Faso coach Paulo Duarte and Romanian Laszlo Boloni were the other two trainers under consideration.

The Frenchman played for Cannes in his homeland before working under compatriot Claude LeRoy in China, England and Ghana.

Renard will not face any competitive action with Angola until the 2012 Nations Cup qualifiers start in September.

Angola are in the same group with Guinea Bissau, Kenya and Uganda.
