The Ivory Coast national football team has parted ways with coach Jean-Louis Gasset and his assistant Ghislain Printant midway through the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament, as announced by the country’s football federation (FIF).
The decision was attributed to “insufficient results” following the team’s 4-0 defeat against Equatorial Guinea in their last Group A game on Monday.
This move follows a trend in the ongoing AFCON, with Ghana’s coach Chris Hughton being sacked on Tuesday and Tanzania’s Adel Amrouche facing suspension. Additionally, Gambia’s coach, Tom Saintfiet resigned after his team’s group-stage exit. The tournament has seen several coaching changes, reflecting the competitive and high-stakes nature of the competition.
