Lamouchi must take some blame says Gervinho

Following their exit in the first round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup with a last-second 1-2 defeat to Greece in Fortaleza on Tuesday, Ivory Coast winger Gervinho has also blamed national coach Sabri Lamouchi for their failure.

“In a match, not only the players are involved. There is also a technical staff in place. The staff and the coach must also have the experience to deal with this kind of games. It is also the responsibility of the coach to handle the match,” Gervinho told RFI.

The Elephants were about to go through to the next round on a 1-1 draw when Georgios Samaras gave the Greeks a 2-1 win from the spot deep in extra-time.

Lamouchi announced that he will not carry on with the Ivoirian national team in the post-match conference, mentioning his failure to win the 2013 African Cup of Nations and to qualify for the round of 16 of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
