Algeria have sacked coach Milovan Rajevac just over three months after he took charge, Algerian public television announced on Tuesday.


“The Algerian Football Federation have decided to amicably terminate the contract of Milovan Rajevac,” the station reported.


The Serb, who took Ghana to the 2010 World Cup quarter-finals, only replaced Christian Gourcuff in June.


Algeria drew 1-1 at home to Cameroon on Sunday in the opening round of matches in the final phase of African 2018 World Cup qualifiers.


Assistant coaches Nabil Neghiz and Yazid Mansouri are expected to replace the 62-year-old Rajevac on an interim basis until a successor is appointed.


FAF president Mohamed Raouraoua met with Rajevac on Tuesday to sort out his future after several players reportedly called for his departure and blamed the Serb for Sunday’s draw in Blida.


Algeria next face Nigeria in Uyo on 12 November in the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
