Algeria sack Rabah Madjer

Algeria have decided to sack manager Rabah Madjer after losing four matches in a row, and it will be officially announced at the Federal Bureau meeting.


A formal announcement will be made on Sunday June 24th after members of the board voted for him to be dismissed. He will only be given two months compensation after the Algerian FA found a reason not to fully pay out the contract that lasts until summer 2019.

As DZ Football reported at the start of the month, Madjer was going to be sacked since the 3-0 loss to Portugal. Head of the FA Zetchi will now begin the process of finding a new manager for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.

The fans turned on Madjer after he was appointed with no coaching qualifications. Algeria lost four friendlies in a row to Iran, Saudi Arabia, Portugal and Cape Verde. The wrong players were also being selected in squads, with form not being taken into account.

Algeria’s next game is not until September 2018, where they will face a tricky trip to Gambia. There are just 348 days until the 2019 AFCON, so there is less than a year to build a team and prepare for the tournament In Cameroon.
