Former France manager Raymond Domenech has taken the reins of Brittany.

The team represents the region in unofficial international matches against senior national teams.

Domenech, who recently revealed that he nearly became Ireland boss, has not managed since France endured a disastrous 2010 World Cup in South Africa after crashing out in the group stage in acrimonious circumstances.

In recent years, Brittany have tended to play games against African sides.
