The Tunisian Football Federation have announced on Friday sacking Henryk Kasperczak from his position as the national team manager.

Kasperczak was appointed in mid- 2015 as he took over the job after Belgian manager Georges Leekens.

In the time since, the Polish manager took Tunisia to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, but was eliminated in the quarter-finals by Burkina Faso.

According to a statement by the Tunisian Football Federation, a new coach will be appointed by the end of the month.

In the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, Tunisia are currently level on six points with Group A leaders DR Congo, after beating their other group opponents, Libya and Guinea.

The upcoming period is crucial for Tunisia, as they will prepare for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, and the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, in which they have been drawn alongside Egypt, Niger and Swaziland.

The Eagles Of Carthage will face the Pharaohs in their first match in the AFCON qualifiers on June 9.

The decision to relieve Kasperczak of his duties came less than two weeks after the Tunisian national team lost two friendlies against Morocco and Cameroon.
