Now Morocco is no powerhouse of football and has lost its first game in the dying minutes to Iran. Their Head Coach though is a different story altogether. Herve Renard has already started turning heads. Not for his managerial talents but for the way he looks. The 50-year-old Frenchman has been with Morocco since February 2016 and has caught the fancy of the social media. Renard, it seems, shares a striking resemblance with Jaime Lannister, a fictional character from popular series Game Of Thrones.
Renard’s photos have been doing the rounds on the internet and we have to agree that he does look like Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's GOT character.
For non-worshipers of GOT, Jaime Lannister is a knight of the Kingsguard and also a member of House Lannister, a powerful associate in the Westeros Kingdom. We kid you not, but the comparison is interesting. Under Renard's guidance, Morocco has ended their 20-year-old dry spell of not making it to the World Cup. He’s got some magic going for him then.
