AFCON 2023 Hosts Ivory Coast Sack Coach Gasset

Africa Cup of Nations hosts Ivory Coast have sacked coach Jean-Louis Gasset midway through the tournament.

The country’s Football Federation (FIF) announced this in a statement, saying that the contracts of coach Jean-Louis Gasset and his assistant Ghislain Printant were terminated due to insufficient results.

Recall that the Ivorians suffered an embarrassing 4-0 thrashing by Equatorial Guinea in their last Group A game on Monday, January 22.

The two-time champions need results to go in their favour in today’s final group matches to reach the knock-out phase as one of the four best third-placed teams.

Ivory Coast have only failed to get out of the group phase once in the previous nine editions of the tournament, in 2017.
