The German tactician decided to resign ‘for professional and personal reasons’, after having led the Stallions to the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers following a 3-2 aggregate win over Benin last November.

The former Gabon and Niger coach, who had been appointed at the helm of the Stallions last February, is set to take up a new role as a football ambassador for the German football association.

Burkina Faso will be looking to hire a new manager early next year, as they will be facing Uganda in a crucial double tie in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in March
