CAIRO – 15 October 2017: Rabah Saadane, the former coach of the Algerian national team, has been officially appointed as a national technical director of Algeria on Sunday.

The Algerian Football Federation (FAF) announced at the same time that Boualem Charef was appointed director of the national teams.

FAF said in an official statement that “the installation took place in the middle of the morning at the Sidi-Moussa National Technical Center in a family atmosphere.”

The FAF president and his two interlocutors agreed on all the details of the contract and the objectives to be achieved in the short-, medium- and long-term.

Saadane, 72, has already led the Algerian national team five times, the last time between 2007 and 2010.

These nominations are part of a broader movement of "renewal for Algerian football" and the nomination of Rabah Madjer as coach should follow in the coming week.

FAF announced on October 12 the dismissal of the Spanish coach Lucas Alcaraz. He will no longer coach the Algerian team in the clash against Cameroon in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers on November 6.

Algeria lost its hopes in qualifying to the 2018 World Cup in Russia after they collected only one point in five matches during the World Cup qualifiers.
