"I will be accompanied by (former players) Amara Simba and Kaba Diawara. My goal is to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations 2017," Fernandez said. "Depending on the results, we'll see how the rest of the story unfolds."
Fernandez has been out of a job since failing to qualify Israel for UEFA EURO 2012. As a player, Fernandez earned 60 caps and scored six goals for France, where he formed 'The Magic Square' with Jean Tigana, Michel Platini and Alain Giresse and won the EURO 1984 before reaching the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup Mexico 1986™.
