Another crisis blow for Ittihad of Alexandria in their relegation fight, as coach Mohamed Amer resigns at a critical time for domestic competition



Ittihad club of Alexandria have appointed youth sector director, Dr. Hassan Abu Abdu as a caretaker coach after the resignation of Mohamed Amer.

“The club board has accepted the retirement of Mohamed Amer,” Ittihad president Effat El-Sadat told the Egyptian media, adding that “Abu Abdu will continue the job with the same technical staff.”

Former Ahly footballer Amer didn’t show up at Ittihad’s training sessions following the 2-1 El-Entag El-Harby defeat last Wednesday in day 23 of the competition.

Amer left his job after a series of humble results. Ittihad is threatened to be relegated to the bottom of the League table with only 16 points after 22 rounds with a game in hand against Wadi Degla.

The Alexandria-based club was established in 1906 and has won the Egypt Cup six times. They have been struggling with financial issues over the past decade.
