Rabah Saadane resigns as Algeria boss

Algeria national team coach Rabah Saadane has resigned after the Fennecs drew with Tanzania in their opening match of the CAN 2012 qualifying campaign.

The experienced coach has been heavily criticized after team’s poor showings at CAN 2010 and the World Cup in South Africa but he agreed to lead the team for two more years only to resign after the Tanzania draw.

Saadane is thought to have been forced into making this decision by the national team chiefs and he merely complied with their wishes.

The Algerian Football Federation president, Mohamed Raouraoua thanked Saadane and paid tribute to his work as the national team coach.

His assistant Abdelhak Ben Chikha is set to take charge as interim boss until Saadane’s successor is appointed.
