Several reports suggest that the players were unhappy with Rajevac tactics, training, team selection.
Algeria sacked national team coach Milovan Rajevac on Tuesday, October 11 just after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Cameroon in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.
After the sack, several reports suggest that the players were unhappy with Rajevac tactics, training, team selection and petitioned the AFF to sack him.
The AFF boss has however denied the reports, stating that ‘a communication problem’ led to the sack.
“I ask myself why the players have been accused; the players are not responsible for the exit of the coach Milovan Rajevac, ” the president said in an interview with ENTV – the national broadcaster of Algeria.
“There was a communication problem, and this is why he decided to leave.”
