Metsu steps down from Al Wasl role

Al Wasl manager Bruno Metsu has been forced to step down from his role after he was diagnosed with stomach cancer earlier this month.

Metsu, who led Senegal to the 2002 World Cup quarter-finals, has been hospitalised since October 15, where he has been visited by former Al Wasl boss Diego Maradona.

"Due to his current health condition, Mr Bruno Metsu has requested to be relieved from his duties as head coach of Al Wasl,'' a club statement on their Twitter page read.

"The Al Wasl Board has accepted Mr Metsu's request and thank him for all he has given, wishing him a speedy recovery and best wishes.''

Metsu took over from Maradona in July, striking up an instant rapport with the Zabeel outfit, winning the confidence of the board, supporters and players.

His assistant Gilles Morisseau will continue looking after the team while the club search for a new manager.

Metsu's managerial career has seen him manage sides in his native France before taking charge of both club and national teams around Africa and Asia.
