Morocco coach Herve Renard says he will seriously consider his future after the completion of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
This comes in the wake of the Federation Royale Marocaine de Football (FRMF) firing technical director Nasser Larguet, before holding a meeting with Renard’s assistants, Mustapha Hadji and Patrice Beaumelle, to discuss the identity of Larguet’s successor.
Renard was notably absent from this meeting, leading to speculation that he will walk away from the Morocco job once the AFCON in Egypt in complete.
“I only knew about this meeting from my assistants after it ended,” Renard said.
“It is a big sign for me that I wasn’t invited to such an important meeting, which discussed the future of Moroccan football.
“This will push me to think a lot about my future after the African Cup,” added the 50-year-old coach, whose current contract with the Moroccan team runs until 2022.
Morocco will play in Group D at the AFCON finals alongside Ivory Coast, Namibia and South Africa. They will kick off their campaign by facing Namibia on June 23.
