Botswana have unveiled Algerian Adel Amrouche as their new head coach, with his first assignment to take charge of the team for the World Cup qualifiers against Malawi early next month.
Amrouche was appointed on Tuesday and will assemble his own technical team after the tie against The Flames.
The 51-year-old has previously led Equatorial Guinea, Burundi, Kenya and most recently Libya, in between spells at Algerian side USM Alger and MC Alger.
He walked away from his post with Libya just days before a crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Nigeria in October 2018, citing unpaid wages and the working conditions within the team.
Botswana have also been drawn in Group H of the 2021 Nations Cup qualifiers, where they will face Amrouche’s home nation of Algeria, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
