Cote d’Ivoire Appoint Wilmots Coach

Cote d’Ivoire have appointed former Belgium coach Marc Wilmots coach of the national team. Wilmots replaces Michel Dussuyer, who quit after a dismal outing at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Wlmots, 48, led his country Belgium to Euro 2016 after he had led them to a quarter final finish at the 2014 World Cup. He is said to ave signed a two-year contract with the Elephants and could sign a further two later.

Wilmots will have his first press conference as Ivory Coast boss on Wednesday, and then oversee his maiden game in charge two days later as they take on Russia on 24 March and Senegal on 27 March in friendlies.
