Ange Bouazama Resigns From French League After Inappropriate Remarks
Angers coach Abdel Aziz Buhazama has resigned over the team’s poor results and inappropriate statements he made in support of a player who is being prosecuted for touching a young woman, the French club said on Tuesday.
Angers said in a statement: “In the face of pressure from the media and in order to preserve the club’s image and calmness in the dressing room, (Moroccan and French nationality coach) Abdel Aziz Bouhazama announced to President (of Algerian origin) Said Chaaban that he had decided to relinquish his position.” .
No details about the identity of the manager who will replace Buhazama were immediately given, while Angers, who sit in last place in the French first division with 10 points after two wins, four draws and 20 losses and have not known a win since September last year, take on Toulouse on Sunday. .
Buhazama, who was previously criticized for failing to score well and failing to get Angers to safety, has found himself in an unenviable position after revealing a conversation before the last match with Angers in which he lost to Montpellier by five points 26, during which he hopes to restore confidence to his Algerian international defender Elias Shetty (28).
And Bukhazama brought his defenseman on board for basically the third time this season, when within a week the local press reported that Shetty admitted to touching a young woman during a nightclub party and that he would be tried next April.
Buhazama said in his player’s defense, “That’s not bad, we’ve all touched the girls,” according to several sources citing newspapers Oest France and L’Equipe.
Angers condemned “unreservedly the words spoken during the conversation, even if they seemed (more) stupid than the intention to downplay the word ‘sexy’, stressing that Buhazama had apologized “to his colleagues, especially among women”.
