Hervé Renard : "Do you want to take pictures with Messi?" The incredible video of his chat

Hervé Renard is already one of the faces of this World Cup after the incredible victory of Saudi Arabia against; Argentina. The video of his talk has been released. distributed by the Federation.

[Updated; day on November 25, 2022 at; 10:28] A chat can galvanize an entire team. After the victory of Saudi Arabia against Argentina, Hervé Renard explained in press conference that he had pushed; a mouthful half-time, unhappy with the performance of his players. It must be said that if Argentina only leads 1-0, it is a small miracle because the Argentines could have led 4-0 without the three goals disallowed by VAR.  Two days after the Saudi triumph, the Federation posted a video behind the scenes of the meeting in which we can attend; this chat.

"What are we doing here, gets angry Hervé Renard, his speech being translated by a staff member. Saleh (Al-Sheri) is it pressing? The pressure, ça does not mean that you have to play high!" And the coach continues, still furious: "Messi, he has the ball in midfield and you stay in front of the defence! Take your phones and take pictures with him if you want! good. Did you see what you did? Can't smell something? Don't you feel like we can come back? Can't you feel it? They (the Argentinians) play relaxed! Come on guys, it's the World Cup! Give it your all!". The extract is visible at from 6 min 20 below.

Hervé Renard is no stranger to major international competitions. The former defender moved on by AS Cannes without having had a great career as a player (a match in the First Division at the end of the 80s) but has accumulated a nice track record on the bench where he did not hesitate to backpacking around the world, especially in Africa. Vietnam, England, French semi-professional divisions, Algeria… Hervé Renard is a football globetrotter when it comes to clubs coached but it was as a national coach that he really made a name for himself. /p>

The architect of Zambia's surprise, executioner then hero of the Ivory Coast

His career obviously remains associated with to Zambia, an outsider country on the African continent which he first led; in the quarter-finals of the African Cup of Nations, the CAN, in 2010 before finding them again in 2012 and leading them to the final of this same competition. There, facing the huge Ivorian favorites strong in an armada with Didier Drogba, Yaya Touré, Kolo Touré or Gervinho, "his" Zambia pull off the feat and win on penalties to create one of the biggest upsets in African football history. After his failure at Sochaux, Hervé Renard then coached… Côte d'Ivoire, which he led. to new to the victory at; CAN 2015.

His second return to France, at Lille, will be synonymous with a second fiasco with a premature dismissal. in 2015. Before taking the reins of Saudi Arabia in 2019, Hervé Renard had already participated to a final phase of the World Cup, àgrave; the head of Morocco at the 2018 World Cup, a course completed; from the first round with only one point in three games (a draw against Spain after two defeats against Iran and Portugal). His debut with Saudi Arabia is already in progress. crowned with success and suggest a possible and surprising qualification for the round of 16. This would be a first since the 1994 edition, where the Saudis had reached the round of 16, eliminated by Sweden after notably surprising Belgium in the group stage.
