Giants Al Ahly have sacked coach Martin Lasarte after the side were knocked out of the Egyptian Cup by Pyramids on Saturday.
The decision was made at a board meeting of the club on Sunday, and comes after Lasarte had led the side to the Egyptian Premier League title last month.
Assistant Mohamed Youssef will lead the team until a new technical director is appointed, which the club has hinted will be from outside the country.
Uruguayan Lasarte was appointed last December to replace Frenchman Patrice Carteron.
Ahly won the first leg of their CAF Champions League tie against South Sudan minnows Atlabara 4-0 and are expected to easily complete the job with the second leg on Friday.
