Algeria coach Leekens quits after Africa Cup of Nations early EXIT

Algeria coach George Leekens has resigned following the nation’s early exit from the African Nations Cup.

Algeria, among the pretournament favourites, failed to win a match in Gabon.

The Desert Foxes finished third in Group B, losing to Tunisia and drawing with Zimbabwe and Senegal.

“Given the pressure exerted on the federation and the national team, I prefer to end my contract out of friendship for the president of the FAF [Algerian Football Federation],” Leekens told the FAF’s official website.

Leekens was appointed for his second spell in charge of Algeria in October, having previously led the team for a four-month stint in 2003.
