Golden Team Soccer

A former coach at France’s soccer team has been hired to head the new team, replacing former boss Patrick Kluivert, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Marc Guiguen was in charge of the French national team since 2011, when he was appointed coach by president Emmanuel Macron.

Guigue was also head coach at the U.S. Men’s National Team, which was disbanded in 2018.

“Marc is the perfect person to lead the French soccer team,” former head coach Luis Robles told the WSJ.

“He has great experience in all aspects of soccer.

He has proven in his career that he is a tactician with a very clear vision.”

Guiguer was the head coach of French club PSG from 2008 to 2017, winning two Champions League titles, two La Liga titles, and a Copa del Rey.

He also played for England, Italy, Germany, and Spain, and was the coach of Brazil’s U-23 and U-21 teams.
