Zaki sets Morocco's target
Moroccan supporters
Moroccans want Zaki to rejuvenate the side
Morocco coach Badou Zaki said he will be seeking new employment should the Atlas Lions fail to reach the last four at the next African Nations Cup.

He told reporters on Thursday that the main goal agreed with the Moroccan Football Federation was a semi-final place at Tunisia 2004.

Zaki, who had a distinguished career as Morocco's goalkeeper in the 80's, replaced Portuguese coach Humberto Coelho in September.

His current contract expires at the end of April 2004.

"If we achieve that (reaching the semi-finals), my contract will be renewed until 2006, under the same terms but it would be terminated in case of failure," Zaki said.

A renewal of his contract would leave him with the task of getting the Atlas Lions to the semi-finals of the 2006 African Nations Cup in Egypt.

That would automatically guarantee their passage to the World Cup finals in Germany.

Morocco's next game will be a friendly at home against Mali on 20 November.
