Algeria Coach Djamel Belmadi Resigns After AFCON Exit

Algeria coach Djamel Belmadi has resigned as head coach of the national team after they were ousted from the Africa Cup of Nations finals on Tuesday.


There has been no announcement from Belmadi or the Algerian football organization, but the state-run Algerie Presse Service reported on Wednesday. reported Belmadi made the announcement in the changing room after Algeria lost 1-0 against Mauritania in Bouake.


Earlier, in the post-match press conference, he told reporters who asked about his future: ‘When we return to the country I will tell you.’


Algeria was due to depart Bouake later on Wednesday.


Belmadi is the third coaching casualty at the tournament in the Ivory Coast after Gambia’s Tom Saintfiet quit and then Ghana announced the sacking of Chris Hughton.


Ivory Coast fired Jean-Louis Gasset after the hosts were eliminated following a calamitous 4-0 defeat against Equatorial Guinea.
