International Federation of Football History and Statistics (IFFHS) have released the 2010 Club World Ranking on Thursday, giving Inter Milan the first place.

Africa and Egypt champions Ahly snatched the top seat among Arab and African clubs, saving their 65th place in the IFFHS rankings.

Tunisian giants Esperance Sportive was the Red Devils' runner-up, picking up the 67th place, while Congolese club TP Mazembe, Africa Champions who recently played in the Club World Cup final in Abu Dhabi, placed 76.

Egyptian club Ismaily was ranked at 115, Harras El-Hodoud at 236, while Egyptian league current leaders Zamalek are out of the world ranking due to their absence from the continental championships.

Last week, the IFFHS placed coach Hassan Shehata in the14th place in the 2010 World Ranking of Coaches, after the tactician led Egypt to win the 2010 African Cup of Nations title for the third consecutive time.
