Arab Contractors refuse to release newly-appointed Shehata for Kuwait job

Hassan Shehata

The former Egyptian national team and new Arab Contractors coach has reportedly been denied to leave his new post to coach the Kuwaiti national team by the Contractors board.

Hassan Shehata, who recently returned to Egypt to coach Arab Contractors after a bumpy spell with Moroccan club Difaa El-Jadida that saw him being ‘forced out’ due to financial problems, has been reportedly contacted by the Kuwaiti Football Association for the vacant head coach post.

Shehata received the call following the sacking of former Zamalek manager, Jorvan Vieira, after a string of unsuccessful performances that saw the Blues prematurely exit the Gulf Cup of Nations, which included a 5-0 trashing from Oman.

It’s well worth mentioning that Vieira was touted by the media to succeed Shawky Gharib as Egypt’s national team manager, however, he’s not one of the coaches considered by the EFA.

Hassan Shehata, who won the African cup of Nations for a record three successive times with Egypt, will be looking to guide Arab Contractors to the upper half of the table as the team currently lies in 15th position.
