Senegal sack Traore after ANC failure

Amara Traore has been relieved of his duties as Senegal coach after the country's humiliating showing at the 2012 African Nations Cup.

Boasting arguably the continent's most potent strikeforce in Moussa Sow, Demba Ba, Papiss Demba Cisse and Mamadou Niang, Senegal were among the pre-tournament favourites.

But the Teranga Lions flattered to deceive in Equatorial Guinea, losing all three games against Zambia, Equatorial Guinea and Libya, and finishing bottom of Group A - their worst ever performance at the finals.

After the embarrassing group stage exit, the writing was on the wall for Traore, who was part of the Senegal squad that famously reached the World Cup quarter-finals in 2002.

"It was a failure and it is the coach's responsibility," Senegalese Football Federation president Augustin Senghor said. "Decisions had to be taken and the executive committee has decided to end its collaboration with the coach and his backup staff."

The Teranga Lions' build-up to the Nations Cup was overshadowed by a contract wrangle between the federation and Traore, with the governing body seemingly in no doubt that the dispute contributed to the poor showing at the finals.

Karim Sega and captain of the 2002 Senegal side Aliou Cisse have been named as caretaker coaches for Senegal's friendly against South Africa in Durban on February 29.
