Jordi Cruyff has stepped down as Ecuador coach without leading the national team in any games.
The Ecuadorian football federation said Thursday it had agreed to end the Spanish-Dutch coach's contract at the request of Cruyff, who is the son of the late Johan Cruyff.
"The coach of the national team communicated his resignation to the president of the federation," the federation said in a statement.
"All contractual clauses will be respected, including the one of damages for unilateral termination of contract by the coach.''
With the permission of the federation, Cruyff has not been to the South American nation since March.
