Al Ahly contacted Trapattoni

Posted on October 14, 2015


chariman confirmed that the Red Devils got in touch with Italian football manager, Giovanni Trapattoni to lead the team.

The Cairo based club hired Portuguese José Peseiro to start his mission as Al Ahly’s new manager replacing Fathy Mabrouk who was sacked along with Alaa Abdel-Sadek.

“Before we hired Peseiro we negotiated with Trapattoni,” Taher said in an inteview on TEN TV channel.

“We were ready to go over the budget to hire Trapattoni but the only thing that stopped us from doing so was his age since he is 76 years old,” he explained.

Giovanni Trapattoni managed a number of well known clubs including AC Milan, Juventus, Bayern Munich and the Italian national team.

“Even if we would have signed him, they’ve accused us of signing an old coach. Even if we hired the legendary Franz Beckenbauer, they’ll say that he hasn’t been coaching for a while,” Taher concluded.
