Egyptian Premier League side Wadi Degla have officially named French coach Patrice Carteron to replace former manager Hamada Sedki in leading the team.

The 45-year-old tactician left TP Mazembe this month after his contact ran out with the Congolese side. He had a successful spell with TP Mazembe leading them to win the Congolese league title in 2014 as well as winning the CAF Champions League title last season and reaching the Club's World Cup in Japan.

Carteron became one of the most successful coaches in the continent after leading the Mali national team to 3rd place in the 2013 African Cup of Nations.

Wadi Degla who finished last season in 5th place in the Egyptian Premier League are currently 14th in the ongoing season with 11 points after 12 games.

They suffered poor results with former coach Hamada Sedki as they only won two games, drew five and lost five games so far this season. 

Carteron is to start his mission with Wadi Degla from the game against Dakhleya in the 15th matchday of the Egyptian League on Tuesday.
