French football coach Francois Ciccolini was sacked on Sunday after just one game with Algerian top-flight club USM Alger.

The former SC Bastia coach’s only game in charge was a 2-1 loss to league champions CR Belouizdad in the Algerian Super Cup.

However the 58-year-old was not dismissed because of the defeat but rather his refusal to go into the stands to his runners-up medal from Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad.

The club announced in a statement posted on social media it had parted ways with the Ciccolini for ‘disrespecting government officials’.
