As the clock ticks down to a CAF Confederation Cup clash with Nigeria’s Remo Stars, AS FAR of Morocco have engaged Fernando Da Cruz as new coach.
The Frenchman had previously handled French Ligue 1 sides, Lille Olympique Sporting Club, commonly called LOSC.
He was an amateur footballer, but was called up to represent the France national fustal team (indoor football) in 1998 at the age of 26, and later became their captain.
At AS FAR of Rabat, Morocco, Da Cruz has been technical director of the football academy for a year before his current designation. He signed a two-year contract as head coach of the Moroccan club.
