FIFA World Cup 2018: Algeria fires coach after poor display against Cameroon 1

The Algerian FA has sacked head coach Milovan Rajevac following a draw the Serbian technician recorded against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on Sunday the 9th of October 2016.The Serbian coach is unemployed again, just three months after his appointment as head of the technical staff of the Algeria football national team.

The decision to get rid of Milovan Rajevac was made public by the Algerian Football Federation on its website. The statement did not however provide any reason for the sacking. But local media reports in Algiers say the poor performance of the Algerians in the match against the Lions of Cameroon hosted at the Mustapha Tchaker stadium in the city of Blida for the first day of the final round of qualification for the World Cup Russia 2018 heralded his dismissal.

The Algerian FA announced that Mr. Milovan Rajevac resigned on Tuesday, October 11, 2016 as national coach of the Algeria team. Milovan Rajevac who led the Black Stars of Ghana to the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa has also prematurely left Algeria with a record of a win and a draw in two matches played.

He is the second coach to have been sacked after Javier Clemente of Libya earlier this week following a (4-0) thrashing by the Democratic Republic of Congo.
