The Libyan football team, Ittihad, announced that they have officially employed the French coach Diego Garzitto to lead them into the next phase of the league after negotiations that took place during the past few days between him and the team's administration.

The administration added that they were late in announcing the signing of the contract because the French coach's previous contract with Al-Merrikh Sporting Club from Sudan had not yet expired.

Garzitto will lead Ittihad on the fourth day of Eid with his assistant and son, Antonio Garzitto.
