El-Badry: I’ll do my best to be the Egyptian manager one day
Hossam El-Badry believes that he should have been appointed as Egypt’s national team head coach, following the appointment of Héctor Cúper.
Argentine Héctor Cúper signed a three-year contract with the Egyptian national team following a failure with Al-Wasl in the United Arab Emirates.
Egyptian Olympic national team head coach Hossam El-Badry reportedly stormed out of the room after the contract was finalized between the Egyptian FA and Cúper to be the Pharaohs’ new head coach.
El-Badry believed that the football circumstances in Egypt nowadays is suitable to give him a chance to be the new head coach, but he told Gulf broadcast program El-Radio 9090: “A foreigner head coach was a must according to the Egyptian FA.”
“I don’t feel wronged because I wasn’t chosen to take charge of Egypt’s national team as the FA wanted a foreign coach to guarantee qualification to the African Cup, but I think the time was right for me to be given an opportunity.
“I still look forward to managing the national team one day; it’s a milestone I will work hard to achieve,” he concluded.
It was reported that El Badry was going to resign from coaching the Olympic national team, but the former Al Ahly coach has denied this.
