The veteran Egyptian coach gained this honour by winning the African Cup of Nations three times in a row (Egypt 2006, Ghana 2008 & Angola 2010), leading Egypt to become the first to achieve that record in Africa, while equalizing the continental records of Argentina (winning Copa América 1945, 1946 & 1947) & Iran (AFC Asian Cup 1968, 1972 & 1976).
‘El Maalem’ (The Teacher) – as he’s often referred to by Egyptian fans – will take charge of Difaa El-Jadida after the World Cup, replacing Algerian coach Abdelhak Benchikha after the club were ousted out of the CAF Confederations Cup by Al Ahly.
