Former Zamalek coach sees as the best solution for Zamalek after the departure of Jesualdo Ferreira from the club. 

Toulan, who was sacked from Smouha in June after a poor run of results, spoke to Al Hayah 2 TV about the Zamalek job as he believes that Hassan Shehata is the most suitable choice for the club at the moment.

“Shehata is even more suitable than me due to his great managing career and abilities, in addition to his quietness and calmness on the pitch,” Toulan said.

Shehata left his post as Arab Contractors manager earlier this month after a poor start to the season.

“Shehata’s time with Arab Contractors won’t affect his career. Manuel Jose didn’t succeed outside Egypt but that never affected his career with Al Ahly and the same applies for Hassan Shehata,” Toulan added.

Toulan notices that many managers in the Egyptian Premier League haven’t received enough time with their clubs, as seven managers have already submitted their resignations.

“Seven rounds aren’t enough for the managers to show their work. The clubs aren’t able at the moment to supply the manager with the needs they demand and this is what happened with Abdel Hamid Bassiouny at Haras El Hodood.”

Helmy Toulan has also recently declined a manager job at Ittihad of Alexandria.

“My refusal came as I wanted to stay inside Cairo as I wanted to stay close to my family,” asserting that managing Ittihad is an honor for every manager.

Regarding the national team, Toulan said that assessing Cuper isn’t possible at the current time.

“We’ll probably be able to assess him after they face tough opponents and he is able show his abilities.”

He, however, praised the national team assistant coach Osama Nabih, saying that he is currently working towards strong goals.

“He had assisted great managers before and had worked with Hassan Shehata and with me. I advised Shawky Gharib to take him when he was managing the national team.”

Toulan also mentioned that is one of the most promising young coaches in Egypt.

“He is doing a good job with Isamily. He had very good time with Zamalek which gave him a lot of experience as manager, yet it is still very early to judge his work at the moment.”
