Tunisia name Kebaier as coach

(Reuters) – Mondher Kebaier has been named Tunisia coach on a three-year contract, the Tunisian Football Federation said on Tuesday.

He replaced former France midfielder Alain Giresse who left the job despite Tunisia reaching the semi-finals of last month’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Kebaier, 49, has served as coach of Tunisia’s leading three teams — Club Africain, Esperance and Etoile Sahel — but had brief spells at each one and had been without a coaching job for the last 18 months.

He will take charge of the Tunisia team when they host Mauritania in two friendlies next week.
