Former Egypt coach Hassan Shehata, a three-time African Nations Cup winner, has agreed to take charge of Mouloudia Alger, according to an Algerian report.

Algerian sports paper El Heddaf said on Tuesday Shehata is expected to arrive in Algeria in the next few days to conclude the deal and begin preparations for the new season.

The 70-year-old, who is arguably one of Egypt's best players of all time, rose to fame as a manager when he guided the Pharaohs to an unprecedented hat-trick of straight Nations Cup titles in 2006, 2008 and 2010.

Egypt were also close to qualifying for the 2010 World Cup under his guidance, only to lose to North African rivals Algeria in a playoff held in Sudan.

However, Shehata has barely tasted any success since leaving Egypt in 2011 after failing to take them to the 2012 Nations Cup.

He had stints with Cairo giants Zamalek, where he made his name, and fellow Egyptian Premier League clubs Arab Contractors and Petrojet.

He also managed Qatar's Al-Arabi and Morocco's Difaa El Jadidi in brief spells.
