African Cup of Nations - Benin sack coach, staff and players

Eurosport - Mon, 08 Feb 15:14:00 2010 Benin have sacked the entire coaching and playing staff following their first-round exit from the African Cup of Nations.

The bizarre decision comes after the Squirrels finished third in Group C, behind eventual winners Egypt and semi-finalists Nigeria.
French coach Michel Dussuyer led the West African minnows to a draw against Mozambique, who they pipped to third on goal difference.
It was their joint-highest finish at the tournament, having previously qualified in 2004 and 2008 but failing to earn a point.
Their top players include Paris St Germain midfielder Stephane Sessegnon, Metz striker Razak Omotoyossi and Plymouth defender Reda Johnson.
The FA claimed a lack of patriotism and mass indiscipline led to the cull.
On the other side, Togo is reported to have started legal proceedings against an Angolan separatist movement and African football's governing body after the attack that left two members of their party dead, according to the Associated Press.

An assistant coach, press officer and driver died when gunmen from the Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda attacked the Togo team bus on January 8 ahead of the African Cup of Nations.
A distraught Togo pulled out of the tournament in Angola and the CAF subsequently banned them from the next two editions due to what they claimed was political interference, leading to the joint legal action which was submitted to a court in Paris.
FLEC leader Rodrigues Mingas, who lives in France, has repeatedly claimed responsibility for the attack, insisting it took place in a war zone and that the Togolese were not intended targets.
"This was not a premeditated hit against the bus of our brothers of Togo," Mingas told a French television stattion. "(The attack was) where our troops operate against the occupying Angolan forces.
"In war, anything can happen, it's just starting."
In addition to the Togolese federation, the families of two people killed in the attack - assistant coach, Amelete Abalo and press official Dodji Komi Ocloo Azanledji - joined in the complaint
