Algeria coach quits after being in charge for just two games

Algiers, Oct 12 (IANS) Just-appointed Algeria coach Milovan Rajevac has resigned after only two matches in charge of the North African football team.

The decision came after a 1-1 draw at home to Cameroon on Sunday in Group B of 2018 World Cup qualifying.

On Tuesday, the 62-year-old Serb met Algeria Football Federation president Mohamed Raouraoua to discuss the result, and his departure was announced shortly afterwards, according to a report in BBC.

Rajevac replaced Frenchman Christian Gourcuff, who had left the job in April.

Algeria’s next 2018 World Cup qualifier is away against Nigeria on November 12. Only the group winners will qualify for the tournament in Russia.

The federation also announced on Tuesday that they have sent a request to FIFA for Bordeaux’s Adam Ounas to switch national allegiances after playing for France at under-20 level.
