Former Lyon and Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier is set to be named France’s new technical director of football.

Houllier, who left Lyon in the summer after leading them to their sixth straight league title last season, occupied the same position in 1988 when Michel Platini was the manager of France.

Houllier is expected to be confirmed in the job on Friday by the French Football Federation, Le Parisien newspaper reported.

“It’s the right time to announce the decision,” FFF president Jean-Pierre Escalettes said.

Houllier will replace Jean-Pierre Morlans who has filled the role on a temporary basis since the departure of 1998 World Cup winning coach Aime Jacquet.
