Tunisian giants Esperance Tunis have announced the appointment of Sebastien Desabre as the club’s head coach to replace Maher Kanzari.
The 37-year-old Frenchman, who left Cameroonian side Coton Sport last month, was initially recruited to handle the youth outfit of Esperance but was promoted to occupy the vacant post when Dutchman Ruud Krol and coach of CS Sfaxien declined the job.
Desabre will hold a press conference on Friday in Tunisia, a day after his first training session at the Hassene Belkhodja Park with the Blood and Gold.
Desabre first job as a coach in Africa was at Ivory Coast’s club Asec Mimosas in 2010.
Wadi Degla vs. El Gouna
The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) announced the groups for the new Premier League season today following the draw at El Hadaf, their headquarters in 6th of October, with the kick-off set for the 26th of December.
The start of the 2013/2014 Egyptian Premier League season has been delayed twice due to security concerns, but the new kick-off date was recently announced for the 26th of December.
As it was known that this year’s league will consist of 22 teams divided into two groups of 11, Al Ahly have been separated from Zamalek in addition to the returning Al Masry to avoid any tension between the two teams and their fans following the Port Said massacre.
Raja Casablanca have appointed Tunisian Nabil Maaloul as their new head coach, the Moroccan club announced late on Friday.
Earlier on Friday, Raja sacked coach Mohamed Fakhir, just two weeks before the start of the FIFA Club World Cup.
"It was not easy for us to keep Fakhir as the team still suffers from a lot of problems that he could not fix," Raja spokesman Samir Shawky told Morocco Radio.
"We will play in a tough tournament next month [FIFA Club World Cup] and we need a coach who can take control so we signed Maaloul. We are the team can return to the winning ways under his guidance."

AC Leopards "The Beasts from Niari" was a club that has never a trophy for 30 years, and Omog guided the club to CAF Confederation Cup triumph in 2012 against Malian side Djoiba AC, and two consecutive Congo Premier League victories in 2012 and 2013.
