Lofti Abdennader quit his post Thursday with Bassem Loukil now named to be in temporary charge of the Sfax club.
Both Sfaxien and Ahly agreed a four-year contract worth 2.5 million Euros for the former Shooting Stars on Wednesday.
However, fans have been most critical of the club’s leadership for sanctioning the transfer of Ajayi and Mohammed Ali Moncer.
Moncer is a Tunisia international and the tall midfielder helped Sfaxien to win the country’s league championship in the 2012-13 season.
