MOROCCO national coach Herve Renard had his World Cup celebrations cut short ... after his daughter was beaten up in the players' tunnel.

The former Cambridge United boss, 49, guided the Atlas Lions to next summer's finals with a 2-0 win away to the Ivory Coast.

However Frenchman Renard was left close to tears after daughter Candide was attacked following Saturday's game in Abidjan.

Video shows the blonde beauty clutching her head in agony as Moroccan medical staff lift her onto a stretcher and carry her to safety.

Reports in Africa claim Candide was attempting to meet her father outside the dressing-rooms after the game when she was shoved and beaten by baton-wielding security guards.

Other accounts suggest she was attacked by Ivorian fans angry at the Elephants' failure to qualify for Russia.

Renard ironically coached the Ivory Coast side from 2014 to 2015, leading them to the 2015 African Nations Cup.

He fumed: "I don't know how people can behave like that towards my daughter.

"With everything that binds me to the Ivory Coast, I can't understand it at all."

An eyewitness added: "It was shocking to see. The emergency services went to rescue her.

"When you think of what Renard did for the Ivory Coast, it is not good at all."

Candide, in her twenties, has a presence on Instagram. She has a brother, Kevin, and sister Audrey.

Renard has also been the national boss of Zambia and Angola. He managed Cambridge in 2004, and has also coached clubs in France, Vietnam and Algeria.
