Alain Giresse gets Senegal job



Former Gabon and Mali coach Alain Giresse has concluded a two-year deal with Senegal football federation (FSF) and will be presented to the press in Dakar on Wednesday, the body confirmed to supersport.com.

The 60-year-old Frenchman’s main objectives are to qualify the Teranga Lions for the 2014 World Cup and the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Senegal have been without coach since October 2012 following the dismissal of Joseph Koto, who failed to book a place for the outfit at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Giresse was born in Langoiran near Bordeaux, where he began his football career as a midfielder. He was a member of the France national team that reached the semifinals of the 1982 World Cup and won the 1984 Euro with the Bleus at home in France.

He has managed clubs like Toulouse, Paris Saint Germain and FAR Rabat. He was Georgia national football team coach between 2004 and 2005.
