Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca have announced their new coach in Faouzi Benzarti, who replaces Hussein Amotta.

The reigning African champions have unveiled the new coach, who signed an 18-month contract, after they sacked Amotta following a string of poor results.

“We have officially signed a deal with Tunisian coach Faouzi Benzarti for one-and-a-half years and our objective is to win titles with our new coach," Wydad president Said Naciri told Moroccan Radio.

"We have an important match in February against (Confederation Cup winners) TP Mazembe in the African Super Cup and we want to win that title."

The 68-year-old experienced manager has worked in Tunisia, including three stints as the country's national team coach.

His most recent appointment was with Tunisian club Esperance, who sacked him earlier this month, and he has also previously coached Raja Casablanca in 2013.
