Diaa Al-Sayed the new assistant coach of Egypt's team
President of the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) Samir Zaher has named the coaching staff that is set to assist new head coach Bob Bradley.
Former Egypt U-20 coach Diaa Al-Sayed has been appointed as assistant coach while former US goalkeeping coach Zaki Abdel-Fattah will have the same job with the Pharaohs. Tarek Soliman will be in charge of the medical staff.
According to the EFA website, a new French coach will join the team later.
“They will start working immediately and will be in charge of leading the team in the friendly encounter against Brazil on 14 November in Doha, Qatar,” he was quoted as saying on Ahram Sport.
Bradley and his staff watched from the stands Egypt’s victory against Niger 3-0 in the African Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.
The American tactician – who won the Golden Cup with the US in 2007 and led them to the final of the FIFA Confederations Cup 2009 – signed a three-year deal with the Pharaohs with the mission of leading them to the World Cup 2014 for the first time since 1990.
