Algeria Football Federation (FAF) president Mohamed Raouraou has disclosed a replacement for coach Milovan Rajevac will be in place before next year’s AFCON.

Rajevac quit his post Tuesday after a dressing-room revolt soon after a 1-1 draw with Cameroon at home in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday night.

“It will be impossible to hire a new coach before the match in Nigeria (November 12),” said Raouraou.

“At this moment there are no names as likely coaches.

“But the national team will have a new coach before the Nations Cup.”

Nabil Neghiz and Yazid Mansouri are expected to be in temporary charge of the team for next month’s trip to Nigeria.

Former Niger and Olympique Marseille coach Rolland Courbis is one of the coaches already linked with the vacant post.
