Is Shawky Gharib the right man for the Egypt job?

The Egyptian FA have finally decided that former manager Hassan Shehata’s right hand Shawky Gharib will take the post as national team manager following the end of Bob Bradley’s contract.

It was stated by the FA a while ago that the next national team manager will be Egyptian and after a meeting on Wednesday, they have decided Gharib is the man for the job.

Although he is yet to sign the contract, Azmi Megahed (FA’s public speaker) stated that Gharib will take over from Bradley, after the latter’s contract expired when Egypt’s World Cup qualifying campaign came to an end.

Other candidates for the job were said to be Hossam El-Badry, Hossam Hassan and former Haras El-Hodood boss Tarek El-Ashry.

Gharib had stints at Smouha SC and currently Ismailly SC (since taking over last month) and he finished third in Group A of the 2012/2013 Egyptian Premier League season before its cancellation with the former.

The former Pharaohs assistant coach helped Egypt win the African Cup of Nations three times in a row between 2006 and 2010.

He also managed the national team and helped win the bronze medal at the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship in Argentina.

As a player, he participated in four editions of the African Cup of Nations and was part of the title-winning squad in 1986.

Reports indicate that Osama El-Araby will remain at his regular post as General Manager, Tarek Soliman to head the medical staff and Samir Adly to remain as team manager.

In the mean time, Gharib will remain at his post with Ismaily SC until they can find a suitable replacement, according the Egypt’s new national team manager.
