Libya part ways with coach Filipovic


The Libyan Football Association (LFA) and Zoran Filipovic have gone their separate ways following a string of poor results.

The Montenegrin mentor joined Libya national team on a one-year deal last year December.

Filipovic, 68, leaves the side due to the unflavoured results against Tunisia and Tanzania in the Total Africa Cup of Nations 2021 qualifiers.

“We are seeking to develop a strategy to promote Libyan football and bring it back to the African front, with the target of qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 2012,” read the statement.

LFA Officials are set to announce the Mediterranean Knights’ new head coach before the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers begin.

The side will also take on Sudan in Doha in the preliminary round of the FIFA Arab Cup, Qatar 2021.
