All About His Career

Being Zambian national team manager, Renard led that team to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations victory. He was the first manager to win the championship twice with different sides of the team. In 2019, he was appointed manager of Saudi Arabia.

During his playing career, which spanned from 1983 to 1998, Renard was a defender for the French clubs AS Cannes, Stade de Vallauris, and SC Draguignan. In the years after he stopped playing professionally, he worked as a cleaner, spending the mornings there and the evenings studying with Draguignan. He finally opened his own cleaning business.

He was chosen to guide the Zambian national team in May 2008.

For the first time in 14 years, he guided Zambia to the quarterfinal stage of the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations. With barely two months left on his contract, Renard resigned from his position as Zambia manager in April 2010.

On October 22, 2011, it was revealed that Renard had signed a one-year contract to serve as Zambia’s coach once more.

In 2012, he guided the group to their first glory at the African Cup of Nations. The victory was given in honor of the 18 players who died in a plane tragedy in April 1993, just miles from where the 2012 Gabon final was held.

Nowadays, it’s well-known that Viviane Dièye and Renard are romantically involved.
