Raja Casablanca sack coach Fullone

November 15, 2006

CASABLANCA, Nov 15 (Reuters) - Raja Casablanca have fired their Argentine coach Luis Oscar Fullone following the 1-0 derby defeat to champions Wydad Casablanca, the club's Web site reported on Wednesday.

Former Morocco international Redouane Hajry has been appointed caretaker coach ahead of Raja's meeting with Al Ahli Jeddah of Saudi Arabia in the Arab Champions League next week.

Fullone departs after a disappointing year for the former African champions, who missed out on the Morocco title and were eliminated in the early rounds of the African Champions League.

It was the second stint at the club for the well-travelled 61-year-old, who won the Champions League with Raja in 1999.
