Petrojet manager Mohamed Youssef resigns after poor run
Petrojet manager, Mohamed Youssef, has resigned from his post on Sunday after a string of poor results that left the club close to the relegation zone.
Youssef took charge of the team last May following Hassan Shehata’s resignation but had a poor record, winning only six games and drawing eight in his 26 matches in charge.
The resignation came following three straight league defeats against Arab Contractors 2-0, Al Assiouty Sport 2-1 and lastly against his former side Al Ahly 3-0 on Friday.
Petrojet was Youssef’s fourth Egyptian Premier League side as he managed Al Ahly, Ittihad El-Shorta and Smouha previously. However, his only trophy was with the Red Devils, when managed to guide them to the 2013 CAF Champions League title.
Petrojet currently lie 13th in the league with 17 points, only four points away from the relegation zone. They are set to face eighth place, Entag El-Harby in the 17th round on Friday.
