Herve Renard Resigns as Saudi Arabia Coach to Lead France Women’s Team in World Cup

54-year-old Frenchman Herve Renard has resigned as coach of the Saudi Arabia team to become the coach of the France Women’s Team ahead of the Women’s World Cup. The announcement was made by the Saudi Arabian Football Federation on Tuesday.

Renard led the Saudi team to a famous 2-1 win over eventual winners Argentina at the World Cup in Qatar last year. 

According to sources, Renard will replace Corinne Diacre as France Women’s coach. France is ranked fifth in the world and is looking to win their first World Cup at the showpiece event being co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand from July 20-Aug. 20. 

Renard quoted, “I think I did the maximum with the team. I can’t reach another level so I prefer to be honest with everybody. Thank you again it was fantastic time.”

Saudi Arabia will be looking to win a fourth Asian Cup title at the continental championship in Qatar early next year. SAFF plans to take their time in appointing a new coach and will not announce a successor to Renard until June at least.
