Former Smouha coach said that he knew about his sacking before his team’s match against .

The Alexandrian club board officially announced the sacking of Youssef and the appointment of Mimi Abdel-Razek as interim manager following the team’s 2-0 loss against El-Maqassa in the third round of the Egyptian Premier League.

“Unfortunately, I learned about my sacking before El-Maqassa game. Smouha board had the intention to negotiate with another coach. Of course I am upset to get sacked after only two league matches,” Youssef said in a radio interview.

The former Al Ahly coach added that making the sacking decision in haste would negatively affect the Alexandrian-based team.

He said that he received several offers, but he is yet to make up his mind on which one to accept.

“Currently, I am not planning to travel outside Egypt. I have several offers to coach in Egypt,” Youssef added.

Smouha are 12th in league table with three points, as they defeated El-Mahalla in the first round before losing to Petrojet and El-Maqassa.
