The coach of Gabon's national soccer team quit Sunday, saying he felt unsafe in the job given threats following a recent loss in Libreville. Gabon's 0-2 loss to Cameroon on Saturday eliminated the Panthers from the running for next year's Africa's Cup of Nations. As coach Alain Giresse exited the stadium after the game, dozens of youth jeered at him and called for him to be fired. "The remarks made against my person were the final drops of water that forced the vase to overflow," Giresse told Gabon's national television. He said he felt targeted by the group and that he "no longer had confidence" in his safety. Giresse had coached the Panthers since March 2006.
