Hosts Ivory Coast Advance into AFCON Round of 16 after Sacking Team Coach


January 25, 2024

Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) hosts Ivory Coast have sacked their coach midway through the tournament, the country’s football federation (FIF) has announced.

A statement from FIF explained that “the contracts of Coach Jean-Louis Gasset and his assistant Ghislain Printant are terminated due to insufficient results“.

He’s not the first coach to leave their team partway through Afcon – Ghana‘s coach Chris Hughton was sacked on Tuesday, while Tanzania‘s Adel Amrouche has been suspended.

Gambia’s coach Tom Saintfiet equally resigned after his team suffered a group-stage exit.
