The Ismaily SC administration, led by Ibrahim Othman, has decided to sack Czech manager František Straka less than six month after hiring him, and giving the vacant job to Abutaleb El-Eissawy.

The 58-year-old was appointed as manager late last year when the club was struggling near the bottom of the Egyptian Premier League table. The decision to sack him came after the club’s match with Alexandria-based club Smouha, in which the Dervishes gave away a two-goal lead.

During his stint as manager, Straka took Ismaily to ninth place with 32 points, just three points from sixth position, but the team exited the at the hands of Smouha.

Abutaleb El-Eissawy, who was general coach under Straka, was appointed as interim manager until the end of the current season.
