Algerian coach Khaireddine Madhoui resigned from his post as Ismaily coach, the coastal club announced early on Sunday.

"Madhoui asked to leave his job after the recent poor results, including the last two successive defeats against Talae El-Geish and Smouha," read a statement on Ismaily's official website.

"The coach's request was accepted by the club's board. Assistant coach Mohamed Mohsen will be in charge of the team temporarily," the statement added.

The future of the 41-year old Madhoui, who took over in May following the departure of Portuguese Pedro Barny, was recently uncertain after a series of humbling results in the Egyptian League.

"Management is currently deciding between some foreign coaches to appoint during the coming days," the statement concluded.

Madhoui started his coaching career at Algerian side ES Sétif in 2010 and gained fame winning the 2015 African Champions League and Super Cup.

He then coached the Saudi Al-Wehda club in the 2015/16 season and his lastest experience was with Tunisian side Étoile sportive du Sahel.

Ismaily, who ended last season as the Egyptian league runners-up, currently lie ninth in the league table with nine points with just two wins, three draws and three loses.
