Hossam Hassan named Masry coach for the third time since he started coaching career
A few days after leaving Ittihad of Alexandria, Egyptian football icon Hossam Hassan has been appointed as the new coach of Masry, the club announced Saturday.
The coastal team shared a photo of Egyptian football legend twins Hossam and Ibrahim Hassan, saying "Welcome back."
"New beginning with our legends, Hossam and Ibrahim Hassan," the club said on their official Facebook page.
"Dear fans, are you ready?!" the club's Facebook status added.
Hassan will replace Mokhtar Mokhtar who resigned by the end of the last season following a series of poor results that sent the club into 11th place in the Egyptian Premier League table.
Former Zamalek coach, Hossam Hassan, was shown the door from Ittihad of Alexandria after placing 14th in the Egyptian league table with 48 points this season.
The 48-year-old tactician Hassan took charge of Masry two times before, in the 2007 season when he saved the team from relegation, and again in the 2011-12 season.
Hassan made his last appearance with Masry in February 2012 following the Port Said Stadium massacre, which killed 74.
