Clemente returns for second stint as Libya coach

Former Spain manager Javier Clemente has signed a contract to return to his old job as national team coach of Libya, the Libyan football federation said on Monday.

No details of the contract were given at a news conference in Benghazi but the 71-year-old will start this month as Libya take on Sudan in the new Arab Cup. Clemente will also be in charge of their World Cup qualification campaign against Angola, Egypt and Gabon later this year.

Clemente served as Libya coach from 2013-2016, leading the team from the war-torn north African country to victory at the 2014 African Nations Championship, the tournament for national teams made up of home-based players only.
