after he took charge, according to Algerian public television.
Algerian Football Federation have decided to amicably terminate the
contract of Milovan Rajevac,” the station reported, with the Serb having
only replaced Christian Gourcuff in June.
Algeria drew 1-1 at
home to Cameroon on Sunday in the opening round of matches in the final
phase of African 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
Nabil Neghiz and Yazid Mansouri are expected to replace the 62-year-old
Rajevac on an interim basis until a successor is appointed.
president Mohamed Raouraoua met with Rajevac on Tuesday to sort out his
future after several players reportedly called for his departure and
blamed the Serb for Sunday’s draw in Blida.
Algeria reached the
last 16 of the 2014 World Cup but face a difficult task in qualifying
for the tournament in Russia after being drawn alongside Nigeria, Cameroon and Zambia. Only the group winners qualify for the finals.
