Tunis - Veteran Polish coach Henryk Kasperczak was appointed
Tunisia coach for a second time on Thursday to replace Belgian George Leekens.
Kasperczak returns to the post he held from 1994 to 1998
when he took Tunisia to the 1996 African Nations Cup final and a World Cup
finals appearance in France.
"Tunisian football has changed much for the better
since I was last here," he told a press conference.
