Lille name Herve Renard as new manager

Former Ivory Coast manager Herve Renard has been named as new coach of Lille.

LILLE, France -- Former Ivory Coast manager Herve Renard has been named as new coach of Lille, the French first-division club said on Monday.

Earlier this year, the 46-year-old Frenchman led the Ivory Coast to their first African Nations Cup title since 1992, three years after leading unheralded Zambia to the African Cup.

Renard, who also had a brief spell coaching Sochaux toward the end of the 2013-14 season, takes over from Rene Girard, who recently left by mutual consent after two seasons with the club.

Lille finished in eighth place this season.

Renard, who has agreed a three-year contract, says "it's an honour to join a club as prestigious as Lille" and "I can't wait to begin this adventure" with my squad.
