Shawky Gharib to resign if Egypt fail to reach AFCON – Report
Shawky Gharib has announced that he will resign from his position as Egypt’s head coach if he fails to lead the Pharaohs to the 2015 African Cup of Nations.
Shawky Gharib told StarAfrica that the negative results as of late have been a consequence of the retirement of a number of former Egyptian stars, naming Mohamed Abou-Treika, Wael Gomaa and Mohamed Barakat.
Senegal and Tunisia currently lie on top of Group G with six points whilst Botswana and Egypt anchor the bottom of the group with zero points.
In a previous interview, Gharib affirmed that qualifying for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations finals in Morocco is “non-negotiable.”
The fans who attended the match in the Air Defense Stadium made it clear, through their chants, that they did not want Shawky Gharib to resume his position as the head coach of the Egyptian national team.
If Egypt fail to reach the Africa Cup of Nations in 2015 it would be the third consecutive time that it has happened, which would be a huge blow to the national team that claimed the title three times in a row in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
