Algeria coach quits after Afcon exit

Algeria’s Belgian coach Georges Leekens quit on Tuesday after the side crashed out of the Africa Cup of nations.

Algeria were one of the pre-tournament favourits for the tournament in Gabon but crashed out after failing to win a game in the group.

“For the good of all I decided to quit even though I do it with heart ache, and I wish all the success in the world to the national side,” he said in a statement on the Algerian Football Federation website.

Leekens was winless in his four games for the Fennec foxes as he drwe two games and lost two.
