TUNIS, Dec 16 (Reuters) - Tunisia have sacked national team
coach, Frenchman Bertrand Marchand, after only six months
following the their miserable start to the African Nations Cup
"We consider it appropriate to terminate our agreement with
the coach after the team's setbacks", Tunisia Football
Federation president Ali Hafsi told reporters.
The 2004 African champions, usually one of Africa's most
consistent teams, have astonishingly suffered home and away
defeats to Botswana and been held at home by Malawi in Group K.
However, they are second in the group and still have a
reasonable chance of qualifying for the 2012 tournament in Gabon
and Equatorial Guinea.
The North Africans have frequently turned to foreign coaches
but Hafsi said Marchand's replacement is likely to be a
Italian named as the referee for this Saturday's Champions League final
