Momen Soliman steps down as Nogoom FC manager

Momen Soliman steps down as Nogoom FC manager
has resigned his post as manager following his side’s 2-1 late defeat against Petrojet on Saturday.

The 45-year-old took charge of Nogoom FC last February after the departure of Ahmed Samy, who stepped down from his position following a string of poor results.

Soliman became Nogoom’s fifth manager in their first-ever season in the top flight after Diaa El-Sayed, Alaa Hesballah, and Antonio Calderon, who coached the club before Ahmed Samy.

Under the guidance of the former Zamalek boss, Nogoom played five games, drawing four against Harras El-Hodoud, Entag El-Harby, El-Dakhelya, and El-Gouna, before suffering a 2-1 defeat to Petrojet.

Club top scorer Salah Amin put Nogoom in front in the dying moments of the first-half, before Ahmed Afifi took advantage of a howler from goalkeeper Ahmed Abdel-Fattah to equalise in the 66th minute.

Three minutes later, Nogoom defender Amr Naguib was sent-off and in the 91st minute, Afifi completed his brace and snatched a huge victory for Petrojet.

Following the defeat, Soliman handed in his resignation and the club have announced that will start looking for his replacement with only four games remaining.

Nogoom will need a miracle to stay in the league this season as they currently sit bottom with 25 points, five away from the safe zone, and they will still face Al Ahly, Pyramids FC, and Al Masry.
