Egypt sack coach two months after appointment



Egypt’s national football team coach, Ehab Galal has been sacked after two months into his appointment.


The 54-year-old replaced Carlos Queiroz in April after the Pharaohs’ disqualification from the 2022 World Cup.


Galal was in charge for three games starting with a 1-0 win over Guinea in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying.


His team then lost 2-0 to Ethiopia and 4-1 to South Korea in a friendly on Tuesday.


The Egyptian Football Association has insisted on hiring a foreign coach to lead the team.


Egyptian Football Association board member Hazem Emam said, “We are in talks with several foreign coaches.


“I would like to thank coach Ehab Galal, a very respectful man, who has worked under some tough circumstances.


“I want to apologise to him, but sometimes the pressure is too much and we saw it would be better for everyone to change.”
