Mido was not sacked for tactical reasons, reveal Al Wehda
Al Wehda vice president Abdallah Khokair has revealed the reason behind Ahmed Hossam Mido’s sacking, saying it’s not a tactical one.
The Egyptian was relieved of his duties as Al Wehda manager after only three months in charge of the club, which saw them enjoy a decent run of games.
Mido guided Al Wehda in 13 games, winning six, drawing three, while losing further four, which included a victory over Al Ahli and a historic draw against leaders Al-Hilal, and was named as the manager of the round twice.
However, Mido wrote a controversial tweet on Monday which carried vile insult to one fan criticizing the performance of Al Wehda under the Egyptian’s guidance.
The 36-year has then deleted the tweet and claimed that his account was hacked, apologizing for any insults appeared on his account, but that didn’t stop the Meccan-based club from sacking him.
Speaking of Mido’s departure, Al Wehda vice president said: “Mido has not been sacked for tactical reasons, but because of a tweet he posted on his official account.
“The fans are a red line, and we hope that his account was hacked, but tactical-wise, Mido’s stint was special.
“Mido has made the league more competitive by drawing with Al Hilal and losing to Al Nassr. We also managed to beat Al Ahli and pick up many points during his time at the club,” he added.
Hours after Mido’s departure, Chilean manager Alvaro Vidal has been revealed by the club as the new man in charge of the Saudi side, becoming the club’s third coach of the season after Fábio Carille and Mido.
Mido will be leaving the Meccan-based club while they sit in sixth place with 36 points from 24 games.
