Michel Dussuyer has resigned as Ivory Coast manager after the 2015 African Nations Cup winners made an early exit from this year's tournament.

The 57-year-old Frenchman, who had formerly coached Benin and Guinea, oversaw group-stage draws with Togo and DR Congo before defeat to Morocco on Tuesday sealed Ivory Coast's elimination.

A statement published by the Ivorian Football Federation (FIF) on Sunday thanked Dussuyer for his work with the national team over the last 18 months, also crediting his "human qualities of dedication, professionalism, humility and discretion".
