Markku Kanerva appointed Finland manager on three-year deal

Markku Kanerva  played for Finland on 59 occasions.

Markku Kanerva has replaced Hans Backe as coach of Finland's national team, the Finnish Football Federation has announced.

Kanerva, who has had two spells in caretaker charge of the country he represented 59 times as a player, has put pen to paper on a three-year deal to become their permanent coach.

Finland have lost three of their four matches in World Cup Qualifying Group I under the stewardship of Swede Backe, picking up their only point against Kosovo.

Backe had only been appointed a year ago but nine defeats and two draws in 11 games brought a swift end to his tenure.
