Coach of Mauritania’s national team Amir Abdou has extended his contract until 2026.
The 51-year-old was named coach of Al-Murabitun in 2022 after eight years at the helm with Comoros.
He had led the Indian Ocean Islanders to their maiden Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon in 2022, shocking four-time champions Ghana in their run to the Round of 16.
His contract with Mauritania, whom he led to the Round of 16 at Ivory Coast 2023, was to end in 2024.
The extension is for two years.
There were earlier reports that Amir Abdou had been approached by officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) over Chris Hughton’s replacement.
Ghana is searching for a new coach after the sacking of Hughton following the group-stage exit from the AFCON in La Côte d’Ivoire.
