Algeria legend Madjer criticises Gourcuff

Former Algerian star Rabah Madjer has criticised Christian Gourcuff, saying he does not have any experience in African football.

Algeria lost 1-0 against Ghana on Friday at the Africa Cup of Nations to make their third match against Senegal a do-or-die game.

"Gourcuff doesn't have any experience in African football because this is the first time he is taking the charge of a team in Africa," said Madjer.

"The players lost their way and failed to play as a team so they became less dangerous against Ghana. The Algerian team have very good players, but they could not play as a team and that's a big problem.

"Algeria should return back to playing with their style not the European style that Gourcuff is trying to employ. Our players don't know the African football very well because most of them play in teams in Europe. They should stick to playing our style of football in the last match against Senegal," the former FC Porto player concluded.

Gourcuff assumed the head coach role of Algeria following the departure of Vahid Halilhodzic, who managed the North Africans at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
