Belgian Michel Preud’homme Set To Be Named DR Congo coach

Former Belgium international Michel Georges Jean Ghislain Preud’homme is poised to take over as coach of Democratic Republic of Congo.

Ducor Sports understands that the 61-year-old is expected in Kinshasa the next few days, to sign his contract and conduct his first news conference.

The Democratic Republic of Congo Football Association (FECOFA) led by President Constant Omari has been in contact with the representatives of Preud’homme and talks are far advanced for a deal to be reached.

FECOFA has been looking for a replacement of Christian Nsengi-Biembe who has not been formally informed of his sacking as the NEC will meet after the Easter break to discuss “administrative issues” around his sacking.

Preud’homme played 58 times for Belgium and was the first winner of the Yashin Award as the best goalkeeper at the 1994 World Cup.

He started his coaching career at Standard Liege and guided the Rouches to the league title in 2008 before leaving the club for AA Gent. He helped the Buffaloos to the Belgian cup 2009/2010 season.

The much-travelled, vastly-experienced Preud’homme has previously managed K.A.A. Gent, FC Twente, Saudi Arabia club Al-Shabab Riyadh and Club Brugge.
