World champion Sellas Tetteh to replace Shawky Gharib at Ismaily?
Ghanaian U-20 coach Sellas Tetteh has been named as a candidate to replace Shawky Gharib at the Ismaily helm.
Ismaily and Shawky Gharib’s short relation has already come to an end; just over a month after the latter’s appointment. Indeed, Hassan Shehata’s former assistant has been officially announced as the new Egypt national team boss.
To replace him, Mahmoud Abou El-Soud, Ismaily president, announced during an interview with reporters that the coastal club have contacted Ghanaian coach Sellas Tetteh, who is famously known for guiding his homeland Ghana to the U-20 World Cup trophy in 2009 – the only African team to win the title.
According to reports, the successful Ghanaian coach would welcome the move to Ismaily. Tetteh already had a foreign experience when he took Rwanda’s reins in 2011.
His last success as a coach was last summer when he led Ghana’s U-20 team to a bronze medal in Turkey at the 2013 U-20 World Cup.
The appointment of Sellas Tetteh as Ismaily coach could be a historic event for Egyptian football, as he would be the first West-African coach to lead an Egyptian side.
