Algeria Coach Milovan Rajevac Resigns After Dressing Room Revolt

Algeria senior football team coach Milovan Rajevac has resigned barely 3 months after taking charge of the Desert Warriors.

The former Black Stars coach lasted only 107 days in charge of the Algerians.

They kicked off their World Cup qualification campaign with a 1-1 draw at home against Cameroon, which caused the Algerian media to question Rajevac’s efficacy in his job.

It was reported that after the Cameroon game, players led a dressing-room revolt against him.

The Algerian Football Federation released a statement claiming that Rajevac resigned from his post as the national team manager after just two games in charge.

Rajevac was appointed as manager last June following Christian Gourcuff’s resignation during the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifications.

Rajevac guided Algeria to a 6-0 win over Lesotho in his first game, before drawing his second game with Cameroon this past weekend.

The Algerian Football Federation will search for a new manager to take over the national team as they are preparing for their World Cup qualifying clash against Nigeria next month and the African Cup of Nations next January.
