Breaking: Libya Coach Quits days Before Nigeria Afcon Clash

Libya head coach, Adel Amrouche, has resigned from his position, bare days before his side travels to take on Nigeria in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations 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”, according to The Libya Observer.

Following his shocking resignation, the LFF 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 head coach, and will be in charge of the team for the crucial Afcon qualification double-header against Nigeria’s Eagles with the first leg coming up on Saturday, October 12, and the return leg two days later in Algeria.

The Mediterranean Knights of Libya currently lead the standings on four points after their rout of Seychelles and impressive draw against South Africa last month.
