Tunisia’s national football team has announced the appointment of a new coach, Nabil Maaloul, the former coach of Esperance ST, one of the biggest Tunisian clubs he had led to the 2012 CAF Champions League.

Maaloul was appointed just a week after former coach Sami Trabelsi resigned from the team after failing to get the national team past the first round of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Tunisia was the winner of the 2004 Africa Cup.

Apart from Maaloul, other ex-internationals including Khaled Ben Yahia and Maher Kenzari were front-runners to succeed Trabelsi.
