Madagascar turn to Mosa yet again

Local coach Mosa has taken charge of Madagascar's national team for a third time.

Mosa replaces Jean-Paul Rabier, 56, after the Frenchman and the federation reportedly parted on amicable terms.

Rabier, who formerly led Burkina Faso, was hired in April 2010 with the aim of qualifying for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

But Madagascar's campaign kicked off with two defeats, losing 2-0 in Nigeria and 1-0 at home to Ethiopia.

The Malagasy, who currently prop up Group B of qualifying, have the chance to win their first points at home to group leaders Guinea on 27 March.

Mosa is a former captain of the national team in the 1970s and previously led Madagascar between 1987-90 and in 1994.
