Algerian giants Mouloudia Club d’Alger (MCA) have re-appointed Nabil Neghiz as their manager.
The 53-year-old tactician was axed by the Green and Red back in February of this year, just days before they opened their CAF Champions League group stage campaign, following a run of poor results in their domestic Ligue 1.
Neghiz was replaced by Abdelkader Amrani, who successfully guided the team to CAFCL quarterfinal qualification before resigning earlier this month.
Amar Brahmia, the new president of the board of directors of Mouloudia, has decided to bring Neghiz back less than three months since his departure.
“I left the MCA with a taste for something unfinished, because my goal was to complete the project that I had launched at the start of the season,” Neghiz is quoted by DZFoot.
“Now that the chance is given to me to go to the end, I hope that we will achieve a good end of the course, and why not offer the club a historic title in this centenary year?”
Neghiz’s first spell with MCA ran from February of 2020 to the same month of this year. He has previously worked with the Algerian national team (as an assistant and interim coach) as well as clubs such as ES Setif, JS Saoura and IR Tanger.
MCA’s first match with Neghiz back in charge will be a Ligue 1 clash at home to NC Magra tonight, while they will also learn the identity of their Champions League quarterfinal opponent when the draw for the knockout round is held at CAF’s headquarters in Cairo in the coming hours.
