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.
