Legendary Egyptian striker Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam says he would like to coach the Pharaohs in the future.
The former Tottenham Hotspur striker is currently in charge of Al Wehda, who are campaigning in the Saudi Professional League.
“I dream of leading Egypt in the future, but I still need more work and developmen," Mido said on King Fut.
Mido represented Egypt 51 times and he scored 20 goals, and was part of the Pharaohs squad that won the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title.
Egypt are currently under the guidance of Mexican tactician Javier Aguirre.
The 35-year-old also spoke about his role at Al Wehda, adding “All the games have become difficult in Saudi Arabia, thanks to the presence of senior coaches and high-level players, and the ambition of Al Wahda has made me agree to work with the team.”
“The road will not be easy to win the trophy, especially as it is possible to face Al Hilal, but we hold on to the dream and hope to go somewhere,” he added.
Mido has also coached one of Egypt's biggest football clubs, Zamalek.
