Libya coach quits ahead Nigeria AFCON qualifier


Libya National Team Coach Adel Amrouche, has resigned his post with just four days to its 2019 Africa
Cup of Nations double header against Nigeria at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom

According to the Libya Observer, Amrouche who is a Belgian-Algerian national decided to throw in the
towel after six months of not being paid his salaries.


He was appointed Omar Al-Maryami’s successor in May, whom interestingly the Libya FA have turned to
lead the team against the Super Eagles for the home and away matches.

The daily paper while quoting sources close to the Libyan Football Federation (LFF) said the federation
were already making plans to sack Amrouche before his exit, after players and team officials had
complained about his coaching methods.

Al-Maryami was in charge when Nigeria defeated Libya by a lone goal at the 2018 Africa Nations
Championship (CHAN) in Morocco.
