Former Bundesliga football star Reinhold Fanz is off to the Caribbean after being appointed as the new coach and technical director of the Cuban national football team. “It’s an interesting job and one I am very much looking forward to. The obvious target is to qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa,” explained the 54-year-old in a recent interview with the German football association (DFB). Fanz has signed a contract with the Cuban FA until July 2010. The first test for Fanz and his team, who are currently in 71st position in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, will be when Cuba take on the winners of the Aruba v. Antigua & Barbuda match in the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ preliminary competition in June.
