Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations action kicks off with underachievers Morocco taking on Namibia. There is as much interest in the coaches as there is in the players. Or rather, one specific coach. Morocco’s Herve Renard is eyeing a hat trick of titles.

He would become just the third ever coach to achieve that feat. This will be his second attempt to bring the trophy back to Morocco after a quarter-final exit from the 2017 tournament in Gabon.

France-born Renard led outsiders Zambia to the title in 2012 and triumphed
again three years later with previously underachieving Ivory Coast.

Ghanaian Charles Gyamfi and Egyptian Hassan Shehata have won three Cup of
Nations titles each as coaches, but with the same countries.
