AFCON coach sacked after just ONE GAME in tournament hosted by Ivory Coast

Tanzania have sacked manager Adel Amrouche after just ONE GAME in the Africa Cup of Nations.

Amrouche landed himself on hot water after his team’s 3-0 thrashing to Morocco at the Ivory Coast.

According to Sportstar, the Algerian tactician claimed the Atlas Lions held too much sway in African football and were influencing the appointment of referees.

That led to an eight-match ban from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) disciplinary committee after a complaint was launched from Moroccan chiefs.

Tanzania’s football federation soon followed suit by initially suspending the 55-year-old following the incident.

But ultimately the African nation decided to fire Amrouche after just 10 months.

Tanzania placed Hemed Morocco as acting coach and Juma Mgunda as his assistant.

Amrouche only managed a total of nine match with the African outfit, winning three.

And he entered this month’s Afcon in the Ivory Coast looking to make history by securing Tanzania’s first win in the tournament.

But the opening game against tournament favourites Morocco proved to be his last.
