Hector Cuper will be presented as the new Egypt manager in a press conference on Monday after signing a three-year deal with the team, Egyptian website reports.

Although the Argentine boss was announced as Egypt's new coach last Monday, some terms were yet to be agreed. The deal was finalised two days ago.

The former Valencia boss will now be presented at a press conference on Monday, where all details will be announced.

The 59-year-old manager, who will be arriving in Cairo for the conference alongside his assistants, is also believed to have agreed a salary of $65,000 per month.  

He will be assigned the role of leading seven-time-African champions Egypt to the 2017 Cup of Nations finals, a qualification that has remained elusive since the Pharaohs' last victory in 2010.
