Burkina Faso are looking for a new coach after choosing not to renew the contract of Hubert Velud following their last-16 exit at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Stallions were beaten 2-1 by Mali in a tense knockout tie on January 30, days after finishing second in Group D behind Angola but ahead of 2019 champions Algeria.

Runners-up in 2013, the Burkinabe – who have never lifted the Nations Cup trophy – had reached the semi-finals in 2017 and at the 2021 edition of the tournament two years ago.

In a statement, the country’s football federation (FBF) said its executive committee “noted that results fell short of the expectations of the Burkinabe people” and reassured fans of its “desire to continue to ensure that the national flag is raised at the highest level in future events”.

“To do this, it is undeniable that the management [of the Stallions], observed during this Nations Cup is out of phase with the ambitions of the executive committee,,” the FBF statement added.
