The Saudis created history by defeating Messi’s team in the match between Argentina and Saudi Arabia. But the story behind this hero may be unknown to many. It was not easy for Saudi Arabia to pull off a victory against a mighty team like Argentina, which has football wizards like Lionel Messi. One has done the impossible from behind.
Who has prepared this incredible Saudi on the world stage? The name is Harvey Renner. If you know the past, you can also be surprised. Today’s successful football coach of Saudi Arabia was once a sweeper. Incredibly, during his 30-year-old spell as coach of France’s Dragoons, Renner also worked as a sweeper in addition to training.
Of course, this is not Renner’s first success. This French coach has the feat of winning the Africa Cup of Nations for two different countries in the coaching profession. However, the beginning of his coaching career was not very memorable. But a changed Renner can be seen in the dugout since taking charge of Zambia.
Renner won the Africa Cup of Nations by defeating Ivory Coast in the second season after taking charge of Zambia. Later, Ivory Coast also took home the same title. Then he coached Morocco. In the end, Rainer’s students defeated the two-time world champion in the World Cup after getting the responsibility of Saudi Arabia. Since then, the Saudi coach has been praised.
