The President of Egypt Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has banned the hiring of foreign coaches for the country’s national team.
This follows the epic failure of Javier Aguirre at the just ended African Cup of Nations. The Mexican failed to guide the host Egypt to even the quarterfinals.
He was immediately fired by the Egyptian Football Association following the round of 16 stage defeat to South Africa.
The Pharoahs haven’t had good fortunes with foreign coaches as they have won all their 7 AFCON trophies with an Egyptian as their coach.
In view of the above mentioned facts, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has ordered that the Pharaohs will no longer be coached by a foreigner.
