Libya Coach Resigns Three Days Before Clash With Nigeria

Adel Amrouche has stepped down from his position as coach of the Libya national team, barely three days to the African Cup of Nations qualifiers match with Nigeria.

The decision of the coach was said to have been as a result of unpaid salary spanning up to six months and poor working conditions.

The 50-year-old who spoke with Reuters said he was frustrated by working conditions of the national team.

The team has been forced to play all their home qualifiers at a neutral venue because of the tenuous security situation in the country.

A 54-man delegation comprising of players, technical crew, backroom staff, and LFF officials will fly into Nigeria on Thursday.

Libya will play Nigeria on Friday with the return leg billed to take place in Sfax, Tunisia on Monday.

Libya currently top Group E of AFCON qualifiers with four points from two games tied with South Africa but with higher goal difference.

Nigeria placed third while Seychelles are fourth.
