Sudanese club Al-Hilal officially appointed Friday Egyptian coach Tarek El-Ashry as the club's new head coach.

The former ENPPI and Haras El-Hodoud manager, El-Ashry will replace fired French boss Michel Cavalli at Al-Hilal, the Sudanese league's runner up last season.

"I am very happy to take the charge of Al-Hilal, the big and famous club and one of the biggest clubs in Africa," El-Ashry was quoted as saying by the club's official Facebook page Saturday.

"I will do my best to build a strong team that will be able to compete in the Champions League," he added.

El-Ashry recently left his post as head coach of Egyptian Premier League club Arab Contractors after a series of poor results.

El-Ashry's prominent coaching achievement is inspiring Haras El-Hodoud to win their first rash of trophies in their history: two Egypt Cups, in 2009 and 2010, and one Super Cup 2009.

Al-Hilal currently shares the summit of the Sudanese league table with rivals El-Merreikh (with 13 points after five matches) with a goal difference advantage to the latter.
