Guinea replace Nouzaret with Camara

Former Liverpool striker Titi Camara has taken over from Frenchman Robert Nouzaret as Guinea coach.

Nouzaret was fired after a 2-1 home defeat to Ivory Coast in a 2010 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

Camara, who is one of Guinea's all-time greats, had been the team's technical director.

"We have decided to stop working with Nouzaret after the recent poor results," said Guinea's sports minister Fodeba Isto Keira.

"We have agreed that he will be paid three months salary rather than 20 months."

Nouzaret's salary, reported to be around 23,000 Euros per month, had already drawn criticism from the head of the military leadership that seized power last December.

"It was becoming too expensive and the team wasn't going anywhere," said Keira.

"We have taken this decision for Nouzaret's own security. He no longer got on with the players or the supporters."

Guinea are effectively out of the race to qualify for the World Cup, after losing their first two games in the final group phase.

They can still qualify for the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations if they avoid finishing bottom of Group E.
