Egypt Football Update: Hossam Hassan Takes Charge as Head Coach

Egyptian football legends Hossam and Ibrahim Hassan have been appointed as the new head coach and team director, respectively, of the Egyptian national team. The announcement came after a disappointing campaign in the African Cup of Nations, where DR Congo eliminated the team in Round 16 without securing a single victory in the tournament. The former Portuguese coach Rui Vitoria was replaced by Hossam Hassan, Egypt’s all-time leading goal scorer with 68 goals, who has won three AFCON titles with the national team.

Hossam Hassan, 57, brings a wealth of coaching experience to the position. Before being appointed the national team’s head coach, he had coached various teams in Egypt, including Zamalek, Pyramids FC, Ismaily, and Masry. He also had a coaching stint with Jordan’s national team. Before taking charge of the national team, Hassan was the tactician at Modern Future FC, a first-division team in Egypt.

Ibrahim Hassan, Hossam’s twin brother, has been appointed as the team director, playing a crucial role in managing and coordinating the team’s affairs. The Hassan brothers, both revered figures in Egyptian football, will look to bring a fresh perspective and instill a winning mentality in the national team.

The appointment of the Hassan brothers is seen as a move to revitalize the team and restore its competitive edge on the international stage. The first challenge for Hossam Hassan as the head coach will be an international friendly against New Zealand scheduled for March.

The Pharaohs, a seven-time African champion, will be hoping for a resurgence under the guidance of the Hassan brothers, drawing on their extensive playing and coaching experience. The choice of the legendary duo reflects a commitment to harnessing local talent and expertise to lead the national team forward. Egyptian football enthusiasts are optimistic that the Hassan brothers can bring success and pride back to the national team.
