Hossam Hassan: I have enough experience to lead the national team
Hossam Hassan is disappointed from the national team’s displays in the World Cup and believes he has what it takes to lead Egypt in the coming phase.
Al Masry coach Hassan was upset with Egypt’s performance against Saudi Arabia and believes he has what it takes to lead this ship after Hector Cuper.
“The team has lost its spirit and failed to represent our country with an honorable performance in the World Cup,” Hassan spoke of the Saudi Arabia match to Sada Al-Balad. “Our defense should not be confused this easily by the opponent.”
“It is an honor for any Egyptian to represent Egypt either as a coach or a player,” he said. “I am very proud of the fact that Mohammed Salah is an Egyptian player.”
“The most important thing about choosing a coach is whether he has the capabilities to lead our country,” said the 51-year-old.
“Zidane is not a Spanish coach, yet his first coaching job was at the helm of Real Madrid. The directors did not focus at his coaching history, but they assigned him based on his abilities and potential.”
“I am one of the most experienced Egyptian coaches in the country. I started my career in 2007 with Al Masry. I took the Jordanian national team to the AFC Asian Cup for the second time in their history, and we were undefeated despite all their difficult circumstances.”
“I have enough training experience to lead the national team,” he said. “I only believe we have to show enough support for a local coach just like we do with a foreign one.”
