French manager has put pen-to-paper on a contract with to take over as first team manager following the departure of Hossam El-Badry.

Carteron, 47, is expected to arrive in Egypt soon for the announcement of his new role as Al Ahly boss after departing from United Soccer League outfits Phoenix Rising to take over the vacant position.

The Frenchman is no stranger to Egyptian football having been manager of Wadi Degla for a few months following his CAF Champions League triumph with TP Mazembe. He guided Degla to a fifth placed league finish after taking over mid-season in January 2016, just one point away from the top four.

Following his departure from Wadi Degla the following season, Carteron was given the Al Nassr KSA job, guiding them to a third-placed finish in the league and thus qualifying to the AFC Champions League during his five months in charge.

Carteron then took over at Phoenix Rising, joining close friend and co-owner of the club Didier Drogba.

He has long been linked with a job at Zamalek ever since his departure from Wadi Degla but financial demands were a big obstacle as well as the club’s instability.
