New Libya coach Zerwan Filipovic has said he will “change everything” as he takes over the Mediterranean Knights for a year into 2022.
Filipovic will be assisted by Mohammad Al-Kikli, who was appointed following success as coach of Benghazi-based Al-Nasr in the Libyan league.
“I will change everything to make the Libyan national team a success,” Filipovic said.
He added that a key difference with foreign coaches of the past is that he would live in Libya itself rather than attempt to do the job from overseas.
He is is the first European coach to work with the Libyan national team since Spain’s Javier Clemente, who led the Libyan national team to win the African Nations Championship for local players (Chan) in South Africa in 2014.
