Benin Republic have terminated the appointment of their manager, Michel Dussuyer following the country’s ouster from the 2021 African Cup Of Nations.
Michel has been working with different African countries since 2002, having enjoyed three spells in charge of Guinean national team, one time in charge of Côte d’Ivoire and two at the helm of Benin Republic national team.
Having reached the quarterfinal of the 2019 African Cup Of Nations in Egypt, the Squirrels failed to get the needed draw against Leone Stars of Sierra Leone.
Kamara’s penalty in the18th minute was what separated the two sides as Benin missed out on the AFCON tournament slated for Cameroon.
The country’s Football Federation announced the termination of Michel’s contract on Saturday afternoon as the team continue to take shape ahead of the 2022 World Cup qualifier slated for later in the year.
“Michel Dussuyer will no longer be the coach of Squirrels of Benin Republic, the decisions has already be taken and it will be formalised in the coming hours,” the statement reads .
Benin Republic is in group J of the world cup qualifier alongside DR Congo, Tanzania and Madagascar.
