Lamouchi steps down in the wake of last-gasp World Cup exit.
Ivory Coast manager Sabri Lamouchi has resigned following last night’s elimination from the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Needing just a draw against Greece, the African nation had looked to be on course to progress beyond the group stage for the first time in their history.
However, Giovanni Sio brought down Georgios Samaras in stoppage time, allowing the Celtic star to secure a last-gasp 2-1 win for the 2004 European champions, who went through at the Ivory Coast’s expense.
Frenchman Lamouchi, 42, had been in charge of the Ivorian national team since 2012, when he replaced Francois Zahoui.
