Algiers, June 25 (IANS) The Algerian Football Federation (FAF) has announced the sacking of Rabah Madjer as head coach of the national squad.

“Members of the FAF’s Federal Bureau who met on Sunday at the National Technical Centre unanimously decided to cancel the contract with national head coach, Rabah Madjer, and all of his staff,” FAF said in a statement, reports Xinhua news agency.

The source did not specify the reasons behind this decision, but observers say the recent poor performance of the Greens forced the FAF to sack the iconic ex-international star.

Madjer was appointed head of the Algerian squad in October 2017 in place of the Spaniard Lucas Alcaraz.

Madjer led the Greens in eight games, collecting four consecutive losses, the last of which was a 0-3 defeat against Portugal in Lisbon on June 7.
