Madagascar Suspend Football Team Coach, Nicolas Dupuis

Madagascar have suspended coach Nicolas Dupuis weeks before the team kicked off the group phase of their 2022 World Cup qualifying bid.

Malagasy Football Federation in a statement on Friday said -“… Nicolas Dupuis, Malagasy national football coach is suspended until further notice and will not be paid during the period of suspension.”

Nicolas Dupuis, a 53-year-old Frenchman is accused of “engagement with several other entities without prior authorisation from the federation” and of “interference in the selection process of the equipment supplier for the national team”.

Dupuis led Madagascar to their first ever Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt in 2019 where they upset the odds to reach the quarterfinals.
