Libya are in search of a new head coach for the men’s national football team after the Libyan Football Federation sacked Montenegrin coach Zoran Filipovic due to poor results.

The 68-year-old was in charge of the Mediterranean Knights for less than six months after being appointed at the end of December 2020.

Libya lost their final two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers games. They lost 5-2 at home to Tunisia and 1-0 in Tanzania – as they failed to qualify for next year’s finals and finished at the bottom of Group J.

Under Filipovic, Libya also lost all three of their group games at the tournament for locally-based players – the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Cameroon in January 2021.

Libya’s next competitive match is against Sudan who were terrific in the AFCON qualifiers, on 19th June in Qatar in a one-leg qualifier for November’s 2021 Arab Nations Cup.

Their 2022 World Cup qualifiers campaign begins in September with games at home to Gabon, followed by a trip to face Angola before back-to-back ties against mighty Egypt in Group F.
