Patrick Liewig has accepted a three year contract offer from Stade Tunisien after a meeting with club officials on Tuesday. The former ASEC Mimosas coach will take over from Mahmoud Ouertani, who will become the team’s sporting director for next season.
Liewig will begin his new job with the side that finished 6th in the Tunisian league while
playing an entertaining brand of football on June 8. The coach will seek to add
consistency to a side that was unable to progress in the CAF Confederation Cup.
The new manager will be a welcome addition
considering his fine coaching record in Africa, where he guided ASEC to three
championships and three cups in Cote d’Ivoire before he was sacked following
their loss to Monomotapa of Zimbabwe in the CAF Champoins League.
