Benin coach Michel Dussuyer has said he has not been told he has lost his job, despite an announcement by the country's football federation.

The BBC spoke to Dussuyer on Tuesday and he said he had not received notification of the decision.

Benin said they had sacked their entire coaching and playing staff following last month's Africa Cup of Nations.

The Squirrels finished third in Group C with one point, after losing to Nigeria and Egypt and drawing with Mozambique.

The country's football federation cited indiscipline and a lack of patriotism from the squad in Angola as the reason for dissolution of the national team.
