Preud’homme’s agent: Ahly name enough for any manager
Michel Preud’homme’s agent Riyad El-Kallal has said that Al Ahly’s stature is enough to convince any manager of managing the club.
Al Ahly have been looking for a new manager following Peseiro’s departure in January. Al Ahly have since named Abdel-Aziz Abdel-Shafy as interim manager and have been linked with several managers including Club Brugge’s manager, Belgian Michel Preud’homme.
Ahly’s managerial shortlist included Germans Bernd Schuster and Felix Magath who turned down the Ahly offer by reportedly citing the political instability in Egypt as the reason for doing so.
The reported interest in Club Brugge manager Michel Preud’homme has led his agent El-Kallal to confirm the interest in television comments made to ONTV channel.
“Al Ahly will send a formal offer for Preud’homme,” the Tunisian said.
“If an agreement is reached, he could be available before Zamalek’s match on Tuesday.”
He added: “I’ve made contact with Essam Serag El-Din before the ENPPI match and received confirmation on Ahly’s interest on signing Preud’homme after the match,”
“What makes Preud’homme accept working in Egypt is Al Ahly’s name and stature.”
It’s worth noting that former goalkeeper and Club Brugge manager Preud’homme was the best manager in Belgium last season and has previously managed Standard Liege, Twente, K.A.A Gent and Al-Shabab.
He won the Saudi League with Al-Shabab as well as the Belgian Cup with both Gent and Club Brugge. He also won the KNVB Cup with Twente and was runner-up in the Belgian Super Cup in 2015 with Club Brugge.
