Tarek Yehia quits as Petrojet manager following Nogoom FC defeat
Tarek Yehia has resigned as Petrojet manager following their dramatic defeat against Nogoom FC in the 13th round of the Egyptian Premier League.
The 57-year-old was appointed last January and led Petrojet in 31 games across all competitions, in which the team won only seven times, drew 13 and lost 11.
He started this campaign positively, picking up seven points from his first five games, where he faced major teams like Zamalek, Ismaily, and Al Masry.
However, the team managed to win only three points from their next six games, before suffering a 2-3 defeat by fellow strugglers Nogoom FC, after they were 2-0 up at half-time.
Their loss to Nogoom FC left them in the relegation zone with 10 points from 12 games, only two above bottom-placed Arab Contractors.
Yehia becomes the ninth manager to leave his club this season in the Egyptian Premier League after Alberto Valentim, Antonio Calderón, Emad Soliman, Mohamed Omar, Kheïreddine Madoui, Hossam Hassan, Alaa Nabil, and Ricardo La Volpe.
