Morocco coach Coelho released
Humberto Coelho
Coelho did not have a good African Nations Cup
Morocco coach Humberto Coelho has been asked to leave his post by the country's football association, the FRMF.

They want to release him from his contract as soon as possible.

Coelho's contract does not run out until October of this year, but the FRMF are hoping he will agree to a separation package.

The former Portugal coach had a bad time with Morocco at Mali 2002, after disagreements with major stars meant an understrength side failed to make it out of the group stages.

A spokesman for the FRMF told Moroccan TV station RTM: "Coelho will stay in charge of the national team until October 2002 but we're hoping for an amicable and rapid separation so that we can find a replacement."
