MATCHS DU JOUR 30
Amir Abdou has decided to leave his post as coach of Comoros. His departure was made official on Thursday. The technician, who led the Comoros to the round of 16 of the AFCON in their first participation, reacted after his decision. "These eight years will remain forever engraved in my memory. Eight years of hard work, eight years marked by doubts, joys, disappointments, fatigue. Sometimes even annoyance, but in the end, I will only remember the positive events. Being a coach has been a big job. It has been a very exciting challenge and a great source of pride. I am very honoured to have had the chance to represent my own nation. It's an indescribable feeling," said the 49-year-old coach in a statement carried by comorosfootball.com.
Amir Abdou then explained the reasons for his departure. The technician is looking for new experiences. "I have decided to leave the position of coach after eight years because I think it is important not to fall into the trap of strict continuity. Sometimes you have to shake things up and dare to change to write new chapters. It's not a question of "leaving the adventure" but as a builder, I have the feeling that the mission has been accomplished. Whether it's with this sporting progression or even this splendid run at the African Cup of Nations."
According to some media reports, he could take over the reins of Mauritania. He is already the coach of FC Nouadhibou.
