Gamal Allam reveals Halilhodžić conditions to lead Egypt

Posted on November 29, 2014


Egyptian Football Association president confirmed that the former coach of the Algerian national team Vahid Halilhodžić has agreed to manage , if his conditions are met.

Gamal Allam mentioned in a TV interview that the Bosnian submitted an application to the Egyptian Football Association to manage the Egyptian national team, following Shawky Gharib’s dismissal.

Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac, the former coach of Ghana who led the Black Stars to the quarter-finals at the 2010 World Cup, has also applied for the job.

“We have received 25 offers from different coaches, most prominently from Vahid Halilhodžić and Milovan Rajevac. In addition, we have applicants from various nationalities including German, French, Serbian, Egyptian and Algerian coaches,” said Gamal Allam.

He continued: “Vahid set his conditions to the Egyptian Football Association as he demanded around €2.2 million per year; he also required assigning an assistant team of his choice, including goalkeeper, fitness and assistant coaches.”

Allam also mentioned: “Personally, I fancy assigning a foreign manager for the job during the next period, but the final decision will be not mine, it’s in the hands of the whole EFA board.”

Halilhodžić decided against renewing his contract with Algeria over the summer after leading them to their best-ever finish at a World Cup – narrowly losing to eventual champions Germany in a tight round of 16 tie – and recently parted ways with Turkish club Trabzonspor.

The EFA president concluded by stating that he wishes Egyptian businessmen could contribute to paying part of the national team’s next manager’s wages as that could support hiring a high profile coach to lead the Pharaohs in the upcoming period.
