Ismaily part ways with Portuguese coach Pedro Barny



Egyptian side Ismaily have announced on Wednesday that they have parted ways with Portuguese manager .

The 51-year-old coach guided the Egyptian Premier League side in 14 games across all competitions, in which he helped them earn eight wins, four draws and lost twice.

The Portuguese manager took over at Ismaily in February 2018 as a successor to caretaker coach Aboutaleb El-Essawy, who was appointed after the departure of Sebastian Desabre to lead Uganda’s national team.

He helped the Ismailia-based side finish second on the Egyptian Premier League table with 68 points and secure Champions League football next season. He, however, failed to guide the team to the Egypt Cup final after suffering a 4-1 loss to Zamalek in the semi-final.

Barny had a previous coaching experience at Portuguese club Boavista. He also accompanied legendary coach Manuel Jose during his third stint at Cairo giants Al Ahly.
