The Franco-Comorian coach’s deal is set to expire in July 2022 but it’s understood he has disclosed to his associates that his final match as Coelacanths coach will be friendly against Ethiopia on March 21.

However, Comoros Football Association (FFC) has indicated that it would like to continue the adventure with the technician.

Abdou attracted the attention of many African teams after guiding Comoros to the Round of 16 of the continental championship.

Comoros were rated one of the best performing teams in Cameroon after the team’s fine display of skill.

The departure of Abdou is once again likely to cause a crisis with few months remaining to the beginning of 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Abdou began his coaching career early with the youth ranks and while coaching French 6th tier side Golfech Saint Paul, he was appointed as Comoros coach.
