Faouzi Benzarti has been sacked as coach of Tunisia just four days after he helped the Carthage Eagles qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup Of Nations.

Tunisia’s next qualifier is away to Egypt in November.

Impressively, the 68-year-old guided Tunisia to a 2-1 victory over Niger in Niamey on Tuesday to seal the country’s place at next year’s Nations Cup in Cameroon with two qualifiers still to play.

“The board decided on Saturday to end the relationship between the Federation and the head coach of the national senior team, Faouzi Benzarti,” TFF said in a statement.

The former Wydad Casablanca boss returned to coach his national team, replacing Nabil Maaloul who left the post after Tunisia’s early exit from the Russia World Cup.
