Former Uganda Cranes tactician Sebastien Desabre has been named as DR Congo head coach.

The 46-year-old ended his contract with French Ligue 2 side Chamois Niortais and replaces ex-Inter Milan tactician Hector Cuper.

Cuper who was sacked in June as the Leopards failed to pick a point in their first two 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games.

“I am very happy to announce that I am the new coach of DR Congo,” Desabre tweeted as translated from French.

“I thank the management of Chamois Niortais, the players, my staff, the whole club, and the supporters for two rewarding years.”

The French man has managed in Ivory Coast, Cameroon, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco in Africa.

His biggest achievement was leading Cranes to Afcon 2019 finals and guiding the nation to the round of 16 at the tournament held in Egypt.
