Egyptian Premier League club Arab Contractors appointed Tarek El-Ashry on Sunday as the football team coach, succeeding Hassan Shehata who resigned on Friday.

The former manager of the United Arab Emirate’s club Al-Shaab, El-Ashry finalised his move with the Wolve’s boss in a meeting at the club headquarters.

The former ENPPI and Haras El-Hodoud manager, who will be assisted by Mohamed Ouda and Ahmed Said, will start his tough mission on Monday.

El-Ashry inspired El-Hodoud to win their first ever three trophies in their history- two Egypt Cups, in 2009 and 2010, and one Super Cup 2009.

Under Shehata – a three-time Africa Cup of Nations winner -- the Arab Contractors only collected two points from five games, and were placed 16th on the league table, with three defeats and two draws.

The 66-year-old coach Shehata took the Contractors' helm near the end of last season when they were lying in 17th place before helping them to finish seventh on the league table.
