Abou-Rida: Cuper to extend his contract before Kuwait friendly
Egyptian Football Association president Hany Abou-Rida has stated that the contract of Hector Cup with the federation will be renewed, indicating that parties are close to finding an agreement.
Cuper’s ongoing deal with Egypt is set to end after the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the Egyptian FA’s intention to renew his contract has been circulating for some time.
The former Valencia coach took over Egypt in 2015 and has qualified with Egypt to the World Cup for the first time in 28 years. Moreover, he reached the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations after the Pharaohs had missed out on the preceding three versions.
“I agreed with Cuper to agree his deal and it is expected to happen before the Kuwait friendly,” Abou-Rida told a local radio station.
“There are no issues with extending the agreement with Cuper and his entire coaching staff will stay as well.”
Egypt will line up against Kuwait on May 25, Colombia on June 1 and Belgium on June 7 ahead of the 2018 World Cup competition in which they will face Uruguay, Russia and Saudi Arabia in Group A consecutively.
