Algiers:Christian Gourcuff on Sunday stood down as coach of Algeria over two years before the end of his contract.

The Algerian Football Federation announced his departure on their official website saying that they had "ended his contract amicably at his request".

The Frenchman had told his bosses of his wish to leave on Thursday according to local reports on the plane flying back from an African Cup of Nations match against Ethiopia.
