Information coming through from North Africa is that Egyptian side Al Ahly have parted ways with coach Hossam El-Badry.

The coach oversaw their 2-0 loss at the hands of Kampala Capital City Authority on Tuesday in their second Group A match in the CAF Champions League.

El-Badry resigned on the same day and the club’s board has accepted his decision, and member Khaled Mortagy told BBC Sport that El-Badry has done the right thing.

"Over the last four or five matches results have not been very promising,” said Mortagy.

"I think he has done his utmost recently winning the league he has done his bit."

The defeat condemned the Red Devils to the bottom of their group with just a point from two matches so far, having drawn with Tunisia's Esperance in their opening encounter.

Meanwhile, assistant coach Ahmad Ayoub will be in charge for the final league game of the season against Al Masry on Sunday.

A statement by the club, who have already won the Egyptian league title, said its football committee will be discussing the way forward.
