TUNIS – Alain Giresse has left his job as Tunisia coach after nine months in the role, having guided them to the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations in July.
The former France international’s departure was announced by the Tunisian Football Federation on Wednesday, who said in a brief statement that it was a mutual decision.
Giresse was appointed in December and helped them reach the last four in Egypt, despite them winning just one match at the tournament outside of a penalty shoot-out.
They drew their three group games and needed a shootout to get past Ghana in the last-16, before beating Madagascar 3-0 in their quarter-final.
They lost to Senegal in the semi-final after extra time, and were also defeated by Nigeria in the third-place playoff.
