Egyptian club Petrojet have officially appointed veteran tactician Hassan Shehata as their new coach for one-season-and-a-half, the club announced late on Monday.

"Shehata will be our new coach after agreeing to all the terms. He will start his mission this week," the petroleum club announced via its official Facebook page.

The former Egypt and Zamalek boss, Shehata, will replace coach Talaat Youssef who recently departed Petrojet amicably to take the charge of Al-Ahli Tripoli of Libya.

The 67-year-old Shehata, a three-time Africa Cup of Nations winner, wasn't committed to any club since departing his post as the head coach of Egyptian club Arab Contractors in November 2015.

Earlier this season, he agreed to take charge of Egyptian outfit Talae El-Geish but the deal was halted.

Petrojet currently lie seventh in the Egyptian league table after 17 matches with 25 points, 20 behind leaders Ahly.
