Ittihad sack Hany Ramzy, name Cavalli as replacement
Ramzy took charge of the Alexandrian-side side last July and has overseen a poor run of form which has left the club in the 12th place after just six rounds.
He took charge in six games in the Premier League this season, won two, drew one and lost three. The Greens have only managed to defeat the two newly promoted sides, Assiouty Sport and Al Nasr, drew with Entag, and lost to Ismaily, Arab Contractors and Al Ahly.
Meanwhile, Ittihad’s board have named Frenchman Jean-Michel Cavalli as Ramzy’s successor and he will take charge with immediate effect.
The 58-year-old head coach has previously managed French clubs including Ajaccio, Lille, RC Paris, US Créteil, and Nîmes Olympique. He also had a brief stint at the Algerian national team in 2006.
Cavalli has also had a number of managerial spells at Saudi sides Al-Nassr and Al-Riyadh, Italy’s Triestina, Morocco’s giants Wydad Casablanca, Algeria’s MC Oran and USM Alger and Sudanese giants Al-Hilal.
The Frenchman’s first game in charge will be against fellow struggles El-Dakhleya, who sit 11th, on Friday, October 27 in the Egyptian Premier League.
