Former AS Roma star Giuseppe Giannini has been named coach of Lebanon.

Giannini has previous coaching experience in Italy and Romania.

"I am very satisfied, as I have two years to help the Lebanon team grow," he told Calciomercato.it.

"I found players who are technically gifted and very quick. I will try to help them improve on a tactical and professional level.

"The Federation did not ask me to win, but to aid a generation of players to grow up and lay the foundations for a better future."
