The supporters of Mouloudia d’Alger, and especially the owners of the club, the national company Sonatrach, reacted very hostile to the announcement. What to push back the direction, which decided to retract and not to engage José Anigo. According to El Watan, the skills of the former OM coach were deemed insufficient by them to help MC Alger, stuck in the second part of the table of the Algerian championship.
A last experience as a trainer dating back to 2018
The Algerian club, which has already had two different coaches in 2021, therefore continues to look for a successor to Abdelkader Amrani, who arrived only two months ago.
Anigo, 59, and former head of international recruiting for Nottingham Forest, will therefore not find a bench right away. His last freelance coaching dates back to 2018 at Panionios GSS, Greece, where he led 14 matches. He also had a short experience on the African continent, at Esperance in Tunis, in 2015. He had lost five out of seven matches and resigned after two months.
