The Serbian Milovan Rajevac has quit as Algeria coach via mutual agreement after players led a dressing-room revolt against him soon after a 1-1 draw at home with Cameroon on Sunday.
Algeria government television on Tuesday broke the news as an official announcement from the Algeria Football Federation (FAF) is expected on Wednesday after their meeting.
The players are understood to have openly blamed Rajevac for the disappointing 1-1 draw at home.
Reports from Algeria said former Ghana coach Rajevac, who took over Africa’s leading country team in June, met with FAF Tuesday and agreed to cancel his contract.
Nabil Neghiz and Yazid Mansouri are expected to be in temporary charge of the team for next month’s trip to Nigeria. Nigeria welcome the North Africans to Uyo on November 12.
