12 of 24 national coaches gone after AFCON 2019

Following AFCON 2019, African football’s notorious habit of chopping and changing coaches continued once more. Futaa looks at the list of coaches who’ve taken the exit door.

The most high profile exit was actually the first casualty in the form of Egypt’s Mexican coach Javier Aguirre, he was soon followed by quite another big name leaving a big nation: Frenchman Herve Renard leaving Morocco. 

However, it is worth mentioning that rather than getting fired, a few of the coaches who have left did so by resigning due to the failure of not seeing eye to eye with the relevant federations.

With a total of 12 out of 24, here’s a full list of the gone:
