Smouha have announced the sacking of manager Mohamed Youssef via Facebook, in the wake of the club’s poor start to the league.

The Alexandria-based club beat Ghazl El-Mahalla away from home in the first round of matches, but followed that up with an embarrassing 0-3 loss in Alexandria to Ahmed Hassan’s Petrojet.

Things went from bad to worse this week, as the 2015 CAF Champions League participants lost 2-0 to a Misr El-Maqassa side looking forward to an African campaign of their own, in the 2016 Confederation Cup.

With 3 points from 3 matches this season and a poor end to their 2015 Champions League campaign, the club have decided to part ways with the ex-Ahly manager they appointed in July 2015, despite Youssef’s achievement of a last-four place in the Egypt Cup.

Mimi Abdel-Razek will take over as interim manager in the coming days, until a new manager is appointed.

Smouha host high-flying ENPPI next Thursday, in what will likely prove to be a tricky encounter.
