Libya wants Alain Giresse



Libya Football Federation said it had contacted former Gabon and Mali coach Alain Giresse to take over the national team and help rebuild the country’s football after last year’s civil war affected the development of major projects in the sport.

A monthly salary of €25,000 has been tabled for the 60-year-old Frenchman, who has also been approached by Senegal.

Giresse, who led Mali to clinch bronze at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations before quitting the outfit later on, is yet to respond to Libya’s proposal.

The Mediterranean Knights did not qualify for the 2013 Afcon but are still on the race for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and topping Group I with four points ahead of DR Congo, Cameroon and Togo.
