The net worth of former Zambia national team manager Herve Renard is $2 million. He led the team to victory in the 2015 Cup against Ivory Coast and is now managing the Arabian Team.
Herve Renard has a net worth of $2 million. This comes from his coaching contracts, sponsorships, and bonuses.
Renard makes about $100,000 for being the head coach of the Arabian national team. He still gets a juicy bonus from the Prince of Saudi Arabia after the win against Argentina in the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Hublot and Adidas, as brands partnering for side gigs with the coach, also sponsored posts with his Instagram handle of over 500k followers.
The French professional coach, who used to be a player with the full name Herve Jean-Marie Roger Renard, was born on September 30, 1968, in Aix-les-Bains. He is the present manager of the Saudi Arabia National team in al-Akhdar.
Renard spent 15 years building a bright career while playing in France for Cannes. He was a cleaner when he worked at Draguignan before starting his janitorial services after he left a professional.
He has managed some clubs in Europe and Asia, and this was before he got a job in Zambia. Then, he took his time to the quarter-finals of the African Cup after 14 years.
Sadly, after seven months, he left the job before moving to Angola. After returning to Zambia in 2011, Herve won the first AFCON title in 2012, but he lost in the group stage the following year.
French club in Sochaux went along the line in October 2013. He later left after a short while when they were down in April 2014, and this was where he got the Ivory Coast Management appointment in May, still in the same year.
In 2015, the French coach became the first manager with Ivory Coast to lift the AFCON trophy.
It all started when he took up the defense position for French sides AS Cannes at Stade de Vallauris and even SC Draguignan from 1983 to 1998.
Renard’s coaching career started with SC Draguignan, and he stayed here from 1999 to 2001 before moving to Shanghai Cosco, where he was for a year.
The professional coach had a contract with Cambridge United from 2004 to 2007 in Nam Dinh and AS Cherbourg. He managed the Chipolopolo of Zambia for two years after winning the African teams before he stayed with the Palancas Negras of Angola in 2010.
Herve was in USM for four years before leaving for Sochaux for another four years, then Ivory Coast and Morocco from 2014 to 2019. His contract with the Saudi Arabia Team is for four more years.
He has participated in nine club competitions and ten international competitions. He added three honor titles to his name after winning the Africa Cup of 2012, the COSAFA Cup in 2013, and the Africa Cup of Ivory Coast in 2015, the first Frenchman to hold a Saudi job.
Renard managed the first official match against Yemen on September 10, 2019, for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification.
Also, he led the Arabian team to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in March 2022, becoming the first foreign manager with the highest number of wins in history.
Qatar’s 2022 World Cup was shocking when the Saudi Arabia team beat Argentina. The giants were down from 2 goals to 1 in their first Group C match on Tuesday. This brought Herve to the eyes and admiration of many since the win showed how he put his skills and mind to good use.
The love life of the French coach got into another relationship after divorcing his first wife, whose identity is unknown. Viviane Dieye, the widow of a late coach, Bruno Metsu, is now in a committed relationship with Herve Renard.
Viviane met her late husband, Metsu, in Italy after he converted to Islam from Christianity when their relationship became stronger. She was a businesswoman while she lived in Morocco, and there was Renard, who was managing the national team.
The ebony lover of the coach now runs a sports store in Casablanca, and Miss Dieye is a stepmom to a girl, Remy, from Metsu’s first marriage.
Late Metsu died from colon cancer on October 25, 2013; they had three children: Noah, Maeva, and Enzo. Almost coincidentally, Renard is a good father to three kids from his first marriage to a woman believed to be their mother. Kevin, Audrey, and Candide are their names.
Candide Renard, daughter of Herve, is an actress and a high-socialite in France. She has been featured in some reality TV shows. Sadly, she has been affected by an assault when her father was the Moroccan manager.
She was attacked after a match while waiting to meet her father outside the dressing room, then got caught up in a quick sprew with some angry local fans who hit her with batons and cans.
They had to rush her away from the scene before more harm was done. Her father, Renard, cried, ‘I don’t know why people would do such to my daughter,’ keeping watch over Candide while she was stretched away. Viviane worried about her health.
