The Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) has relieved Adel Amrouche of his duties as the head coach for the Tanzania National Football Team.
Supersport is reporting that the decision stems from Amrouche’s recent allegations asserting Morocco’s undue influence within the Confederation of African Football (CAF), in orchestrating match outcomes and referee selections.
Consequently, CAF imposed an eight-match ban on the Taifa Stars’ tactician before being axed.
TFF’s Information and Communications Officer, Clifford Mario Dimbo has since announced the appointment of Hemed Morocco as the interim head coach, with Juma Mgunda serving as his assistant.
Amrouche’s accusations surfaced following Tanzania’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of the Northern Africans, who currently lead their group with three points in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.
Presently, Tanzania finds itself at the bottom of their group, having accumulated no points thus far.
Their upcoming match is against third-placed Zambia at Laurent Pokou Stadium in San Pédro on Sunday.
In the standings, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) occupies the second spot, sharing a point with Tanzania’s upcoming opponents.
