After failing to qualify for the World Cup four times in a row, Morocco qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar after playing in Russia four years ago, topping their group with a 5-2 aggregate win over Democratic Republic of Congo in the play-offs.
But Halilhodzic resigned from his job in August amid what the national association called “disagreements”.
That means former Morocco defender Regragui is back three months before the tournament in Qatar.
He will be looking to lead the football-mad nation to their best finish since the 1986 World Cup, when they became the first African nation to qualify for the first round, not only from a group consisting of England, Poland and Portugal, but won them.
