Manchester United legend Steve Bruce has been linked with the head coaching position at Egyptian giants Al Ahly.
The 'Red Devils' are yet to name a replacement for Patrice Carteron who was dismissed last month shortly after the club's defeat to Esperance de Tunis in the Caf Champions League final.
Bruce was sacked as Aston Villa head coach - where he managed Egypt's Ahmed Elmohamady - in October following a slow start to the 2018-19 English Championship season, having narrowly missed out to promotion the season prior.
The 57-year-old, who has worked with several Egyptian players including Ahmed Hossam Mido, has also been heavily linked with the Sheffield Wednesday job.
Although there is no doubting his credentials, Mido believes that appointing Bruce as Al Ahly head coach might be a gamble.
“He is a great manager and has got great coaching abilities but I think taking over Al Ahly now is a big gamble,” Mido told NRJ radio station.
“Martin Jol didn’t fail with Al Ahly and his league triumph is a proof. It’s too early to predict the league winner, the second round will see a lot of changes in the standings,”
Former Inter striker Ramón Díaz has also been linked with the Al Ahly post.
