Hossam El Badry in talks with Sudanese giants Al Merreikh
Hossam El-Badry is set to succeed to German tactician Michel Kroger who stepped down as coach of Sudan's Al-Merreikh after losing to reigning champions Al-Hilal, according to Al-Ahram Arabic Portal.
The deal is set to be officially unveiled within the next 24 hours. El-Badry will start preparing the team immediately for a new campaign.
The former Ahly defender had a 17-month spell at the Cairo giants and led them to the League and Super Cup titles before quitting after being jeered by fans following a 3-1 defeat against Ismaily on Day 11 of the Egyptian Premier League.
