Algerian side are closing in on signing Egypt’s as their new manager, according to reports in Algeria.

The former Egypt manager has been without a club since leaving Petrojet last April after a series of disappointing results and he is set to succeed Kamel Mouassa, who left the club recently.

MC Alger finished the 2016/2017 league season in second place, seven points behind ES Sétif and were knocked out of the domestic cup semi-finals. They have also lost the Algerian Super Cup to USM Alger in November.

However, they qualified to the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-finals, where they will face Tunisian giants Club Africain on the 7th and 14th of September.

The 70-year-old has been in high demand since resigning from Petrojet. He has confirmed that he was approached by Nigeria and Ghana, but the negotiations broke down

Shehata led Egypt to three consecutive African Cup of Nation between 2006 and 2010, but since then has failed to lift a trophy despite managing giants like Zamalek, Qatari side Al-Arabi, and Morocco’s Difaâ Hassani El-Jadidi. He had also stints at Arab Contractors, Tala’ea El-Gaish, and Petrojet.
