Tunisia sack Coach after AFCON exit

The Tunisia Football Federation has sacked Head Coach of the Carthage Eagles, Mondher Kebaier following the team’s exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Football Federation announced the decision a day after the Carthage Eagles elimination from the AFCON.

The North Africans lost 1-0 to the stallions of Burkina Faso in their Quarter-final clash at the Roumde Adija Stadium, Garoua on Saturday.

The 51-year-old have been in charge of the team since August 2019.

Kebaier’s assistant Jalel Kadri will take charge of the side for the two-legged play-off against Mali in March for a place at the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar.

The former champions finished third in their Group, but managed to qualify as one of the best third-placed teams.

They beat Nigeria 1-0 in the second round before succumbing to Burkina Faso in the round of 16.
