Information landing through from Egypt is that El-Dakhleya has parted ways with coach Ahraf Kassem with immediate effect.
Media reports in Egypt indicate that Kassem has has stepped down after a string of poor results as the ex-Ghazl El-Mahalla manager confirmed on Monday.
The report comes just one day after bottom-placed Nasr Lel Ta’adeen defeated El-Dakhleya 1-0, condemning the latter to the relegation zone, one point behind 15th-placed Aswan.
El-Dakhleya are facing the threat of relegation as they only managed to earn one point from their last five league games as well as getting knocked out of the Egyptian Cup by Al Ahly.
The 50-year-old coach was in charge of 12 matches across all competitions, won two, drew five and lost five leaving the team in the 16th place in the Egyptian Premier League log table.
Meanwhile, El-Dakhleya’s upcoming tie will be against fellow strugglers, Entag El-Harby, who sit 13th in the league with 22 points.
This must win encounter is slated for Sunday at Gehaz El-Reyada Stadium.
