This is barely two days after the Desert Foxes were held to a 1 – 1 draw by the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in Algiers.

The development was confirmed by the Algerian Football Federation that the former Black Stars of Ghana coach confirmed his resignation in a statement.

“Mr. Milovan Rajevac resigned today, Tuesday, October 11, 2016 from the post of national coach of the Algeria team,” the AFF was quoted.

The 62-year-old Serbian had a three-year spell with the Black Stars having managed Ghana’s national football team between 2008 and 2010. He also managed Qatar national football team but was appointed the Algerian team coach on June 26, 2016.

With the latest development, there is panic in the camp of the Desert Foxes who have a date with the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the Godswill Akpabio stadium in Uyo in November on day-2 of FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Nigeria lead Africa’s qualifying Group B with three points having defeated the Chipolopolo 2 – 1 right there in Zambia; Algeria and Cameroon follow with one point each, while Zambia are bottom of the group.
