l-Ittihad football club has sacked the French coach Diego Garzitto and assigned Hamdi Batou in his place to coach the team in the remaining league and cup matches.

According to their official page, the club's management committee instructed the football administrator to dismiss Garzitto from his position, after Al-Ittihad's 2-0 loss to Al-Ahli Benghazi at Benina Stadium on Monday in the round-of-four matches of the Libya Football League., diminishing his hopes of winning the league title. 

This result left Al-Ittihad with only five points dragging him back into the second place.
