African journeyman Henri Michel passes away

Former French international and manager Henri Michel passed away on Tuesday morning at the age of 70.

Michel played 58 times for his country between 1967 and 1980, and later guided the Olympic and senior Les Bleus sides.

He led the Olympic side to the gold medal at the 1984 Games in Los Angeles, beating Brazil 2-0 in the final. Under his guidance the senior side reached the semifinals of the 1986 World Cup before defeat to West Germany.

Michel briefly managed Paris Saint Germain in 1990, but then spent the rest of his career almost exclusively in Africa.

He led Cameroon (1994), Morocco (1998) and Ivory Coast (2006) to the World Cup finals, and also managed Tunisia (2001-2002), Equatorial Guinea (2011) and Kenya (2012), his last job.

He also managed a number of major clubs throughout Africa, including Raja Casablanca, Zamalek and Mamelodi Sundowns.
