The Sudan Football Association have announced the appointment of Croatian Zdravko Logarusic as national team manager on a short-term basis.

The 55-year-old has worked in Ghana, Kenya, Angola and Tanzania according to BBC Africa.

Logarusic will lead Sudan at the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco.

The Sudan Football Association will review his position after CHAN.

"I met the football president [Kamal Shaddad], a very respectable person, sitting with him was something special," Logarusic said.

"We talked about everything. The first impression was very impressive.

"This is a dream job and the plan is to prove that I can make a positive impact on the country's football,” he continued.

"I have been in Africa for a long period and this will help in adapting to things in Sudan."

The 2018 CHAN competition, which is for African footballers based in their own domestic leagues, will be staged in Morocco between 12 January and 4 February.

Sudan are in Group A with Morocco, Guinea as well as Mauritania.
