Le Guen sacked as Oman football team coach

Muscat, Nov 20 (IANS) The Oman Football Association has announced the dismissal of French Paul Le Guen as coach of the Omani national team due to poor results.

The former coach of France’s Olympique Lyonnais, Paris Saint-Germain and Scotland’s Rangers coached the Omani national team since 2011.

The Omani national team is currently in second place in the group, three points behind leaders Iran.
