Former Algeria Boss Cavalli Takes Over At Wydad Casablanca


Former Algeria boss Jean-Michel Cavalli has taken over as boss of Moroccan outfit Wydad AC of Casablanca.

The Reds failed to defend their 2005-06 title last season, finishing a disappointing fourth, meaning that the door was open for a new boss to take over after a similarly disappointing start to the current campaign.

Cavalli, given his experience with Algeria, seemed to be the ideal candidate to replace the sacked Plamen Markov, who so far has only managed to steer the side to fifth place this season.

The Fennecs and Cavalli parted ways after failing to reach the 2008 Nations Cup, losing out to Gambia in their final game of qualification.

Ajaccio-born Cavalli, 48, most notably served as boss of Lille in the mid 1990s. He’s also served the likes of Al-Nasr and Al-Riyadh in Saudi Arabia, Ionikos, and Creteil.
