After only three months, Serbian Milovan Rajevac has resigned his position as Head Coach of the Algeria national football team.

A statement of the website of the Algeria Football Federation (FAF) said: "Mr Milovan Rajevac on Tuesday, 11 October 2016 resigned from his position as head coach of Algeria national team".

His resignation comes following a meeting with the leadership of FAF, just two days after 'Les Fennecs' were held to a 1-1 draw by Cameroon in their Group B opener of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Blida.

The Serbian is famed for his stint with Ghana between 2008 and 2010, where he guided the Black Stars to the brink of a last four berth at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, losing on penalties to Uruguay.

He becomes the second coaching casualty after the Day One matches of the group phase qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, after Spaniard Javier Clemente, was relieved of his duties as Libya coach after a 4-0 loss to DR Congo in Kinshasa. Clemente had been in charge since 2013 and guided the North Africans to win the African Nations Championship title in South Africa in 2014, their first and only major title.
