Algeria’s Kheïreddine Madoui has stepped down as Ismaily manager, with his assistant Mohamed Abougrisha taking temporary charge.

The 41-year-old Algerian coach took over as Ismaily manager last May, but has left by mutual consent his post after a series of disappointing results.

Madoui was in charge for only eight games, with an overall record of two wins, three draws, and three losses, which left in the ninth place in the league table with nine points.

The Yellow Dragons have suffered two consecutive heavy defeats by El-Gaish and Smouha, losing to the latter 3-1 at home on Saturday, which forced the club’s board to force him to leave.

Club legend Mohamed Mohsen Abougrisha will take over on a temporary basis and will lead the team in their upcoming game against Al Kuwait in the first round of the Arab Championship.

Ismaily are currently ninth in the Egyptian Premier League table and their next league game will Arab Contractors on Monday, October 1.

They will take part in this year’s CAF Champions League tournament after finishing second in the league last season.
