RS Berkane name new coach ahead of CAF CC second leg clash against Ashantigold

Published on: 19 September 2019

Moroccan side Renaissance Sportive de Berkane have named former FC Porto winger Tarik Sektioui as their new manager. 

The ex-Morocco international's first game in charge will be against Ghanaian side Ashantigold in the CAF Confederation Cup.

"Tarik Sektioui is the new manager of RS Berkane, replacing Mounir Jaouaani. The former Porto winger is coming from Moghreb Tétouan, where he didn’t lead the team in a single match before terminating his contract. This will be his first big test as head coach," the Club announced on their Twitter handle.

Tarik Sektioui joins the CAF Confederations Cup finalist from Moghreb Tétouan, where he did not oversee them in any game.

His first task will be to lead the club to eliminate Asahntigold from the Confederations Cup after their first leg 3-2 defeat in Ghana.

Sektioui, 42, played 18 times for Morocco between 2001 to 2008.

He also played for the likes of Auxerre, Willem II, AZ Alkmaar, Porto, Ajman club and Maghreb Fez.
