Shawky Gharib: I promise to take Egypt back to the top
Just hours after being instilled as national team manager, Shawky Gharib has promised to bring Egypt back on top.
Speaking to television channels, Gharib said: “Every single FA member has put their trust in me and I promise them that I will live up to their expectations.”
“I promise everyone that I will build a great team that will make Egyptian football proud and will put it back on the right track and win trophies,” he continued.
“I swear to god that my ambitions with the national team has no limits and I know that the burden will be huge in the upcoming period, but I’m up for it and will try my best,” Gharib concluded.
In the end of his conversation, the former Ismaily manager left some kind words for his mentor Hassan Shehata – whom he assisted for six years with the senior side between 2006-2010, saying that he respects both him and the period that they had together with the national team.
It is worth noting that the Egyptian signed a contract that will keep him with the team through qualifications to both the African Cup of Nations in 2015 and the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
