Oldham Athletic has appointed Laurent Banide as head coach on a one-year-deal.
The 51-year-old has managerial experience abroad which includes stints at AS Monaco, Al Nasr and Al-Orobah FC.
Most recently, Banide was in charge at Umm Salal SC in Qatar, before leaving in 2018.
Banide enjoyed a playing career at AS Monaco, Marseille and Strasbourg before moving into a coaching role with Monaco in 1993 where he spent 12 years before being made first team manager.
He will officially start his reign on July 1 when the players report back for pre-season training.
Chairman Abdallah Lemsagam said: “I’m delighted to welcome Laurent to Oldham Athletic.
“He brings a lot of experience to this club and I’m looking forward to working alongside him the 2019-20 campaign.
“I believe Laurent is a fantastic coach and is the right man to take this club forward going into the new season.”
