OFFICIAL: Congo sack manager Pierre Lechantre
Congolese Football Federation have decided to sack Pierre Lechantre from his job as manager of the national team following their dismal start to the World Cup qualifiers.
The Congolese football federation have released a statement on their website, explaining the reasons behind their decision to sack the Frenchman.
The Frenchman, who was appointed last January following the departure of Claude Leroy, failed to guide Congo to the 2017 African Cup of Nations, finishing second in Group E behind Guinea-Bissau, who qualified after Congo’s loss against Kenya in the fifth round.
The 66-year-old has recorded just one victory with Congo, winning against Guinea-Bissau in the last round of the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifiers. Lechantre also drew twice and lost three games with the Red Devils.
Congo’s next game will be against Ghana in Accra in the third round of the World Cup qualifiers, before facing them again a week later in Brazzaville.
