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