Abdel Halim Ali replaces Osama Nabih as Toulan’s assistant
Zamalek manager Helmy Toulan has choosen Abdel Halim Ali as his assistant to replace Osama Nabih – who left his post with the club, joining the Egyptian national team’s new technical staff.
Speaking to Yallakora, Toulan said: “I choose Ali among several names as I believe that he will be a promising coach.”
“We worked together at Ittihad El-Shorta S.C and he proved that he is efficient enough for the position,” Toulan ended.
Ali, who is Zamalek’s all time top scorer (80 goals) played for the club from 1999 winning numerous honors including three league titles, two domestic cup’s and one CAF Champions league medal before retiring in 2009. He was also part of Egypt’s squad that won the African Cup of Nations in 2006.
Straight after his retirement, he was announced as Zamalek’s assistant coach from the start of the 2009-2010 season but left his position due to some issues with Hossam Hassan, who was Zamalek’s first team manager at the time.
