FTF narrows down candidates

The Tunisian Football Federation FTF has announced three candidates to take the charge of the National team .

Head coach Sami Trabelsi resigned from his position this week after he failed to lead the team to the knock out stage at Afcon 2013.

FTF announced that they had accepted the decision from Trabelsi and that they now have three candidates to pick from as his replacement. They are Nabil Maaloul , Maher Kenzari and Khaled Ben Yahia.

” We will start negotiation with the three coaches and soon will announce our new coach” FTF told supersport.com.

Maaloul who led the Tunisian giant Esperance to the final match of African Champions League said he welcomed the opportunity to take the charge of The Carthage Eagles.

Ironically the new Esperance coach Maher Kenzari is also being considered .

Tunisia came in third place of Group D at Afcon 2013 with just four points after one win against Algeria , a defeat from the Ivory Coast and draw with Togo.
