Russia 2018: How players’ revolt led to sack of Algeria’s coach

Fresh facts have emerged on why the Algerian Football Federation fired Coach of the Desert Foxes, Milovan Rajevac, ahead of the clash against the Super Eagles of Nigeria, on November 12, at the Ibom international stadium, Uyo.

The coaching crew led by Rajevac has been under pressure after blaming the players for Sunday’s1-1 draw with Cameroon in Blida.

It was gathered that the senior players didn’t accept the coach’s argument instead they blamed him for his tactics which led to the draw against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon who dominated the game especially in the second half.

The former Ghana coach guided Algeria to a 6-0 win over Lesotho in his first game, before drawing his second game with Cameroon this past weekend.

The Football Federation have less than 30 days to name a new coach and prepare for the game against the Super Eagles of Nigeria who defeated Zambia 2-1 and are now sitting atop the Group.
