BREAKING: Hector Cuper to leave Egypt after contract expires
The Egyptian FA has confirmed that they won’t be renewing Hector Cuper’s contract when it expires and have thanked him for his time in Egypt.
This decision comes following the abysmal World Cup campaign, which saw Egypt lose all three of their games to Uruguay, Russia, and Saudi Arabia and finish bottom of their group.
Hector Cuper was named the Pharaohs’ manager in March 2015 and has gone to coach Egypt in 38 games, guiding them to the World Cup as well as the 2017 AFCON final.
His overall record with the Pharaohs is 20 wins, six draws, and 12 defeats, with the national team managing to score 53 goals while conceding 31.

Egypt have not won a game since the Congo World Cup qualifier in October 2017, drawing three and losing six since then.
The Argentinean’s contract was expected to be renewed before the World Cup, however, the negotiations were delayed and now the EFA have decided not to renew his contract.
The EFA made their decision following a meeting on Tuesday and will hold a press conference on Wednesday to reveal more details.
They are yet to reveal the name of the new manager, but they have announced earlier that they will appoint a foreign one.
