Tanzania fires coach Amrouche after CAF ban
  • PublishedJanuary 20, 2024

Tanzania has sacked coach Adel Amrouche after he received an eight-match ban and $10,000 fine from the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for accusing Morocco of influencing the continental body.

Amrouche, who took over as manager of the Taifa Stars in March 2023, made allegations following his team’s 3-0 loss to the Atlas Lions in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) opener in Cote D’Ivoire on Wednesday.

The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (RMFF) filed a complaint with CAF’s Disciplinary Committee, which ruled Amrouche guilty of violating the code of ethics and behavior.

The Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) confirmed in a statement on Friday that national team coach Adel Amrouche’s contract has been terminated, effective immediately.

TFF has also appointed Hemed Morocco as interim coach for the team’s remaining AFCON matches.

Tanzania will play Zambia in their second Group F match on Sunday.
