Egyptian Premier League side El Geish have parted ways with Tarek El-Ashry as their head coach just one day after the season drew to a close.
The 57-year-old returned to the helm for a second spell in December 2021, having previously held the reins for a brief two-month period during the 2020/21 campaign.
El-Ashry guided the military outfit to fourth in the league with a 1-0 victory over Ismaily on the final day of the season as they pipped Future in head-to-head points.
However, the Egyptian tactician announced his departure just 24 hours later in a statement as he expressed gratitude to the club’s board.
“I am proud of the experience and what I achieved and I will always be supportive of the team,” he said.
El Geish wasted little time in finding a replacement, with Alaa Abdel-Aal taking charge at the Gehaz El Reyada Stadium after leaving relegated Eastern Company.
Abdel-Aal had been appointed by the newly-promoted club one game into the 2021/22 campaign, although he failed to keep them up after finishing three points adrift of safety in 17th place.
