Egypt’s new coach to be one of AFCON semi-finalists

Alain-Giresse - next Egypt coach?In its search for Egypt’s new national team coach, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) will look at the semi-finalists of the currently in progress Africa Cup of Nations 2015 tournament.

Egypt is without a coach since manager Shawky Gharib was sacked two months ago after Egypt failed to reach the continental competition for the third time in a row.

Today, in a television interview, EFA board member Magdy El-Metnawi revealed that the 40-man shortlist for the post of national team coach needs to be trimmed to six or seven names.

But, El-Metnawi also said that Egypt’s coach “will be one of the four coaches in the AFCON semi-finals.”

Alan Giresse, who has just led Senegal to a victory in their opening game against heavyweights Ghana, was previously included in the EFA’s shortlist, and El-Metnawi now says that he is indeed “one of the favourites.”

“But the final decision won’t be made before the end of the African Cup,” he added.

    @gameref hahaha you are right. This absolutely ridiculous. Maybe they should do contest in association with Coca-Cola and if you buy the bottle with the right code under the cap you become the coach of The Egyptian National Team hahahaha
