Tanzania sacks head coach, Amrouche, after making alleged wild accusations against Morocco


Zambia’s opponents at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Tanzania, for their Group F encounter tomorrow (Sunday) have fired manager, Adel Amrouche, after just one game at the tournament.

According to multiple media reports, Amrouche landed himself in problems after his team’s 3-0 thrashing at the hands of Morocco during the ongoing footballing showpiece hosted by Ivory Coast.

The Algerian coach claimed the Atlas Lions were influencing the appointment of referees.

That led to an eight-match ban from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) disciplinary committee after a complaint was launched from Moroccan chiefs.

Tanzania’s football federation soon followed suit by initially suspending the 55-year-old following the incident.

But ultimately Tanzania decided to fire Amrouche after just 10 months in charge.

The Tanzanian football governing body has since appointed Hemed Morocco to take charge in an interim role for the rest of the tournament with his assistant being Juma Mgunda.

Morocco’s first assignment will be against Avram Grant’s Chipolopolo on Sunday.
