Algerian side, MC Alger, have sacked their manager Nabil Neghiz ahead of their CAF Champions League opener against Zamalek.
MC Alger were drawn in one of the Champions League’s toughest groups alongside Zamalek, four-time champions Esperance from Tunisia and the competition’s newcomers Teungueth from Senegal.
Their opening match is set to take place next Friday, when they visit the previous edition’s finalists Zamalek.
However, they have been struggling on the domestic level this season. As they sit fifth on the league table with 19 points, five behind leader ES Setif.
They have also been unable to win any of their last four games. Which led the club’s board to part ways with Nail Neghiz.
However, they have yet to announce a replacement for the former Algeria national team assistant manager.
