Former Chipolopolo coach Herve Renard is new Zambia coach, according to Super Sport.
He replaces Italian coach Dario Bonetti who recently qualified Zambia for the African cup of nations coming up next year in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya was expected to announce Renard’s appointment anytime.
Renard was Zambia coach between May 2008 and February 2010.
The Frenchman quit his position for a lucrative deal with the Palancas Negras of Angola where he was sacked barely six months in the contract.
Renard later joined an Algerian side USM, Algiers where he currently is, but has been keen to return to Zambia.
He guided Zambia to a third finish at the inaugural CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Renard became the first coach to take Zambia to the quarter-finals since 1994.
