The Ivory Coast national football team has parted ways with their head coach, Jean-Louis Gasset, in the wake of a dismal 4-0 defeat to Equatorial Guinea during the ongoing AFCON 2023.

The Ivory Coast Football Federation (FIF) announced the decision today after the devastating loss, signaling a swift response to the team’s disappointing performance. The defeat to Equatorial Guinea not only dealt a severe blow to Ivory Coast’s AFCON campaign but also raised questions about the team’s overall strategy and preparedness.

Jean-Louis Gasset, who took over the coaching reins in 2022, faced mounting pressure in recent weeks as the team struggled to secure positive results in the tournament. The 4-0 defeat proved to be the final straw for the FIF, prompting the decision to terminate Gasset’s contract.

As the news of Gasset’s dismissal reverberates through the football community, fans and analysts are left speculating on the potential candidates to take over the coaching role. The new coach will face the daunting task of regaining the team’s confidence and steering them towards success in the future.
