DUSSUYER OUT AT IVORY COAST
Michel Dussuyer yesterday stood down as Ivory Coast manager following their elimination at the Africa Cup of Nations. The Frenchman’s decision to resign after 18 months in charge was announced by the Ivorian football federation. “The appropriate measures will be put in place to find his successor,” a statement said, praising Dussuyer’s “professionalism, commitment and human quality”. Under Dussuyer, appointed in 2015, the defending champions failed to win a game in Gabon, losing to Morocco after draws with Togo and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
