Petrojet manager announced that he departed the club following a disappointing start to his managerial career, while has been appointed in his place.

Having started the season with high hopes, Ahmed Hassan’s golden opportunity to make an early name for himself in Egyptian football management came to and end last night as the ex-Ahly and Zamalek star announced that he has quit his job at Petrojet.

The Egyptian Premier League dark horses are currently 14th having collected five points from seven games, winning just one in the process.

The Egyptian national team legend confirmed that he parted ways with Petrojet as a reaction to the board’s decision to negotiate with another manger while the position was already occupied, as well as being unlucky with the team.

The now former Petrojet manager Ahmed Hassan said in televised remarks: “Being unlucky is one of the reasons that led me to leaving the club, I told the players that I am leaving after the Arab Contractors game. I made a proper team for Petrojet without getting paid.”

The 40-year-old, who previously mentioned he regretted not taking the role as a player-manager, went one to praise his team and mentioned the one thing that they are currently missing.

“Any manager that will arrive at the club will collect the fruits of our hard work rapidly. The team includes lots of talented players, they only lack chemistry,” he added.

Hassan finally highlighted the main reason he quit Petrojet by saying: “I know very well that Petrojet were negotiating with another manager, me feeling that I am not welcomed prompted my resignation; I did not escape.”

Ahmed Hassan was swiftly replaced by ex-Tala’a El-Gaish manager Talaat Youssef, who led his previous employers to a 9th-placed finish in last season’s Egyptian Premier League campaign.

Petrojet face in-form side Dakhleya on Tuesday which will be Talaat Youssef’s first game as manager since departing Tala’a El-Gaish last season.
