Ahmed Hassan - final phase drawEgyptian legend Ahmed Hassan has revealed that he rejected an offer from Ismaily to be the assistant coach at the club, saying that his director role with the national team remains his only focus.

Speaking to Ahmed Shobeir in his daily show ‘Shobeir wel Negoom‘, Hassan revealed that Ismaily club president Mr. Mahmoud Abou El-Soud offered him to become Heron Ricardo Ferreira’s assistant coach at the Dervishes.

“I’m honoured to receive such an offer,” Hassan said. “However, I’m fully focused with the national team.”

The former Besiktas and Anderlecht man continued his words by dismissing rumours that there are differences between him and national team coach Shawky Gharib.

“There aren’t any differences,” he said. “The rumours are false.”

Hassan then went on to describe Zamalek’s new signings as ‘a public display of power’ from the board led by chairman Mortada Mansour.

“The new signings will definitely improve the side,” he said. “However, I have to say that it is a public display of power from the board.

“The countless players who have left didn’t deserve to leave in such a manner.”

It is also worth mentioning that the world’s most capped international player donned the famous yellow shirt of Ismaily in the 1997/1998 season before heading off to Turkish club Kocaelispor.
