Egyptian football powerhouse Al Ahly have confirmed that they are in talks with European and South American coaches.
The Al Ahly coaching job became vacant after Hossam El-Badry resigned following a 2-0 defeat to Ugandan side KCCA FC in the 2018 CAF Champions League Group A game on Tuesday.
The Cairo giants have revealed that six tacticians from Argentina, Brazil, Czech Republic, Holland, Serbia and Portugal are keen to replace the Egyptian coach.
“The shortlist includes six foreign managers whose nationalities are Argentinean, Portuguese, Brazilian, Dutch, Serbian and Czech,” Ahly said in a statement on their official website.
“The club have opened channels of negotiations with the six managers … to settle the matter as soon as possible.”
The Red Devils are currently under the guidance of Ahmed Ayoub, who is acting as a caretaker coach
Al Ahly, who recently clinched the Egyptian Premier League title, will take on Al Masry on Sunday in their last domestic league game of the season.
