AFCON qualifier: Libya Head Coach Resigns Days Before Playing Nigeria

Adel Amrouche, Head Coach of Libya National Team has reportedly resign from his position just few days to his side playing Nigeria in the AFCON qualifier.

The Libyan Football Federation (LFF) said earlier, that there had been a request by players and some of the management’s personnel lodged at the LFF, to meet and discuss the possibility of sacking Amrouche for his “random coaching”, the Libya Observer reports.

Adel was only appointed in May revealed that he quit his job after going six months without his salary paid, according to Libyan daily, Alwasat.ly.

The daily also revealed that Al-Maryami will lead the Mediterranean Knights out against Nigeria in Uyo. Al-Maryami has already taken charge of the team’s training in Tunisia following the sudden exit of Amrouche.

Libya occupy the top spot in Group E of the AFCON qualifiers with four points from two games following their 5-1 win over Seychelles in June last year and goalless draw recorded away to South Africa.

The Libyan FA has now threatened to sue him for absconding duty.

In a statement, the FA reveals Adel Amrouche left the team’s training base in Tunisia on Tuesday, October 9.

Omar Al Marmi replaces him as the coach.

Libya plays the Super Eagles on Saturday, October 12.

Before the game he said Nigeria Football Team uses ‘JUJU’ to win matches, a statement he later apologized for saying it was a mere joke, seems like Nigerians haven’t let that go and actually used ‘JUJU’ to get to him. Just a wishful thinking tho
