Upon his retirement, Fergani was appointed as an assistant manager of Algeria national football team, as well as the coach of his former club JS Kabylie. His managing career took off to a good start as he won the 1990 African Cup of Nations in his homeland. Fergani was re-appointed as the coach of Algeria national team in 1995, but was dismissed just one year later, after a defeat to Kenya.[4]
