Maghreb Fes management will not be extending the stay of their coach Rachid Taoussi, whose contract with the team expires at the end of the current season, after their elimination from the CAF Champions League on Sunday, according to Moroccan magazine Elbotola.

 Early this May, Taoussi promised Maghreb Fes's supporters  that the team would qualify for the group stage of the CAF Champions League to continue their recent success after winning the 2011 CAF Confederation Cup and the 2012 CAF Super Cup.

Moroccan Sports News web portal Elbotola also revealed that the tactician is close to leading Forces Armées Royales de Rabat (FAR Rabat).

"Taoussi has not extended his contract with Maghreb Fes as he has reached an agreement with FAR Rabat to be in charge of their first division football team next season," the magazine's sources said.
