Tarek El-Ashry resigns from ENPPI post
El-Ashry, who had only taken up the post last summer, has had a very successful season with the petroleum side.
ENPPI were one of the sides fighting for survival last season, finishing 8th in the first group. With 22 points from 20 games, they only barely scraped through and could have gone down.
With him currently being regarded as one of the best Egyptian managers, ENPPI signed him on a one season contract, hoping that he could help boost the side up the table.
El-Ashry’s system worked like a charm; the side currently occupies second place in the Egyptian Premier League with 61 points from 33 games.
Surprisingly, He has resigned from his post as ENPPI’s head coach, albeit following a 4-2 thrashing from 8th placed Harass El-Hodood which might have accelerated his departure from the petroleum side.
The 50-year-old was already on the way out at the end of the current season having agreed terms with UAE side Al Shaab on a season-long contract.
