Nice rebound for Patrick Cazal. three months after the end of his long adventure with Dunkirk where he had been a player (2005-2008), assistant (2008-2011) then head coach (since 2011), the technician will become coach of the Tunisian team.

Paris 2024 objective

The Reunionese (51) will have the mission of preparing it for the World Championship in Poland and Sweden, from January 11 to 29, 2023, but above all, in the longer term, to restore the luster of the most glorious selection on the African continent and to qualify for the Paris Olympics in 2024. Ten times winner of the CAN, Tunisia has lost ground in recent years against its great continental rival, Egypt. Not qualified for the Tokyo Olympics, she finished in a pitiful 25th place at the 2021 World Cup.

Double world champion as a player, champion of France in 2014 on the bench of USDK (the last title having escaped Paris-SG), Cazal has signed up for two years.

The leaders of the Maghreb federation hope to have as much success with him as with another big Blue of the 1990s, Alain Portes. In office from 2009 to 2013, the latter had won two CANs, reached the quarter-finals of the Olympic Games and the World Cup.
