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.
Oh, is this why we have to wait till next year for #GoT?
