Ghana's No. 1

Hervé Renard eyes Ghana return, wants to win AFCON with the Black Stars

Published on: 17 May 2020

Frenchman Hervé Renard has failed to rule out a return to Ghana as he aims at winning the Africa Cup of Nations with the Black Stars.

Renard was deputy to Claude Le Roy when the Black Stars won bronze at the 2008 African Cup of Nations hosted by Ghana.

The two-time winner of Africa's premier football tournament speaking to TV3's Juliet Bawuah revealed his intentions of leading Ghana to win the prestigious football competition again.

Ghana have gone drought since winning Africa Cup of Nations for the 4th and last time in 1982.

The Black Stars have come close to clinching the ultimate thrice since then as they lost in finals of 1992, 2010 and 2015 editions.

"Yes I have to come back one day to help one country to win. That country haven't won it for a longer time and that is your country Ghana. I will love to win this feat with the Black Stars," he said.

The 51-year-old masterminded the Zambia triumph of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations where the Chipolopolo beat Ghana in the semi-finals.

Renard also led Ivory Coast to their only second Africa Cup of Nations title in 2015 in Equatorial Guinea, also beating Ghana in the finals in post match penalties.

The former Ghana assistant coach is currently handling the Saudi Arabia national team after his spell with Morocco came to an end in June 2019.

Renard guided Morocco to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and a disappointing round of 16 exit at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt losing to Benin on penalties.
