ICYMI: Algeria part company with manager Belmadi
Algeria have parted company with manager Djamel Belmadi following their exit at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The 47-year-old has departed after Algeria’s 1-0 defeat to Mauritania on Tuesday.
The result left them bottom of Group D having drawn their previous two games against Angola and Burkina Faso.
Walid Sadi, president of the Algerian FA (AFF), said: “I met with Djamel Belmadi to talk about the consequences of this bitter exclusion, and we reached an amicable agreement to dissolve the association and break the contract that links the coach with the Algerian Football Federation.
“We thank Djamel for everything he did for the team and wish him good luck in the rest of his career.”
