Hossam El-Badry To Be Appointed As Coach Of Al Ahly
Egyptian giants Al Ahly have revealed that Hossam El-Badry will replace Martin Jol as the team’s new manager heading into the 2016/17 season.
Jol resigned from the Red Devils last week after a wave of criticism for him and the team. Al Ahly had not only lost in the final of the Egypt Cup to arch rivals Zamalek, but were also eliminated from the CAF Champions League.
The Cairo side completed their Champions League group stage campaign with a dead-rubber draw against ASEC Mimosas on Wednesday, but the real news coming out of their camp is the appointment of El-Badry.
Ahly confirmed on their official website that the 56-year-old will be officially unveiled at a press conference on Saturday.
This will be his third spell at the helm of Al Ahly, having first take charge at the club in 2009 after the departure of legendary Portuguese coach Jose Manuel, while his second stint was from 2012 to 2013.
El-Badry has a good record of success with Ahly, having led them to an Egyptian Premier League title, the CAF Champions League, CAF Super Cup and two Egyptian Super Cups in his time at the helm.
