Libya coach Adel Amrouche has resigned just four days before the Mediterranean Knights play Nigeria in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Libyan Football Federation (LFF) confirmed his departure and added that his assistant Omar Al-Maryami will take over in an interim capacity.

The LFF also added it is looking to take action against Amrouche over his sudden departure.

BBC Sport understands that one of his main complaints was unpaid wages.

While Amrouche told the Reuters news agency he was frustrated by working conditions with the team.

The Seychelles are last in the group without any points with only the top two teams qualifying for the finals next June.
