The Ivorian Football Federation has terminated the contract of Patrice Beaumelle, coach of the national football team for two years.

The French technician, 43, is no longer the coach of the Elephants of Côte d’Ivoire.

His contract, which expired on April 6, 2022, has not been renewed, said the Normalization Committee of the Ivorian Football Federation (CN-FIF) in a press release on Monday April 11, 2022.

The Ivorian football body expressed “its thanks to coach Beaumelle and all his staff for the work done at the head of the technical supervision of the Elephants”.

Appointed national coach of the A team of Côte d’Ivoire on April 4, 2020, Patrice Beaumelle led the Elephants to the last AFCON. They were eliminated in the round of 16.

Beaumelle even said in a recent interview that Elephants of Ivory Coast are ready to fight to win 2023 AFCON which will be hosted by them.
