Algeria part ways with coach Rabah Madjer
According to the Algerian Football Federation, the members of the football federation decided on Sunday to dismiss Madjer from his duties as the team’s coach. The federation has also decided to dismiss the coach’s assistants Meziane Ighil and Djamel Menad.
In their last two friendly ties, Algeria lost to Cape Verde 3-2 and Portugal 3-0, which pushed the decision of firing the 59-year-old manager before the tough fixtures of the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The North African giants failed to qualify for the World Cup, but began their 2019 AFCON qualifying campaign with a 1-0 victory over Togo.
Madjer was one of the legends of Algerian football as a player and was the first Arabian player to win the European Champion Clubs’ Cup (UEFA Champions League). He took over Algeria’s national team last October, replacing Spanish coach Lucas Alcaraz.
The Desert Foxes are now in search for a sixth manager in just over two years.
