ENPPI reappoint Hany Ramzy as manager
Egyptian Premier League dark horses ENPPI announced that Hany Ramzy will be leading the team following Tarek El-Ashry’s departure.
This won’t be the former Egypt Olympic national team coach’s first spell at ENPPI having started his coaching career at the club as an assistant before being promoted to manager three years later in 2007.
Hany will be replacing Tarek El-Ashry, who had only taken up the post last summer before joining Al Shaab of the UAE in June. Tarek had a very successful season with the petroleum side leading them to a third place finish.
Hany Ramzy has previously revealed that he received an offer to become former teammate Murat Yakin’s potential assistant coach at Serie A side Lazio, but the Swiss-Turkish manager eventually took over the helm at Spartak Moscow.
In November 2012, Lierse, owned by Egyptian Maged Samy, appointed Ramzy as first team manager – becoming the first Egyptian to coach a European football team. He later managed Samy’s other club, Wadi Degla in the Egyptian Premier League.
The 46-year-old also previously took charge of both the Egypt U-20 and U-23 sides, leading the national team to the quarter-finals at the London 2012 Olympics.
It will be interesting to see how Hany influences his club’s transfer decisions. ENPPI’s best players, Ahmed Refaat, Mahmoud ‘Kahraba’ and Amr El-Halawani are all linked to moves to Cairo giants Zamalek, while midfield gem Saleh Gomaa has joined Al Ahly for 7 million EGP.
