The Tunisian Football Federation has terminated the appointment of national team coach Henryk Kasperczak after both parties failed to reach an agreement on the settlement terms of of the 70-year-old’s contract.
The federation had been in talks to negotiate an early termination to Kasperczak’s contract but were unable to find common ground.
“It was not possible to find common ground and therefore we decide on a unilateral separation,” TFF said in a statement on Saturday after dismissing the Pol.
Kasperczak, who has had two spells in charge of Tunisia, guided them to a runner-up finish in the 1996 Nations Cup and also helped them to qualify for 1998 World Cup finals in France but returned for a second spell with the north African nation in July 2015.
Tunisia were knocked out by Burkina Faso in the Nations Cup quarter-finals last month and they recently lost friendly internationals against Cameroon and Morocco.
The Carthage Eagles now top their World Cup qualifying group, achieving a 100% record in Group A of Africa’s qualifiers where they share top place with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
However, officials in the country’s footballing system said Kasperczak had not made sufficient progress with the team especially in his team’s attitude and tactics.
