Former Manchester United defender Laurent Blanc has been named on a four-man shortlist for the Morocco national team job.

Laurent Blanc and three other coaches have made the list to determine the man to replace Herve Renard.

Apart from the ex-Manchester United centre back, Houcine Ammouta (Morocco), Walid Regragui (Morocco) and Vahid Halilhodzic (Bosnia and Herzegovina) also made the list.

Laurent Blanc has been linked with a lot of managerial jobs in recent times.

He was previously linked with the Newcastle United job before the Magpies appointed another ex-Red Devil Steve Bruce as their new manager.

Blanc has not been in the dugout since leaving French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG) in the summer of 2016.

He was replaced by current Arsenal manager Unai Emery at PSG.

Unai Emery was the PSG manager between 2016 and 2018 before he left to take the Gunners job.

Laurent Blanc could replace Herve Renard as the Moroccan national team manager in the coming weeks.

Herve Renard left the post shortly after he could only lead Morocco to a last 16 berth at the just concluded African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt.

Morocco crashed out of the tournament via a penalty shootout against Benin Republic.
