Ismailia-based club Ismaily have appointed Khaled El-Kamash as the team’s third coach this season after the resignation of Tunisian Nasreddine Nabi.

"Ismaily’s board thanked Tunisian tactician Nabi for his unlucky short spell at the club," the club stated on their official website on Wednesday.

The former AC Leopards of Congo and Saudi Al-Hilal manager Nabi resigned after a poor run.

"We appreciate Nabi understanding that the club's circumstances affected the team's results," the statement added.

Nabi was unveiled late December as Ismaily’s coach. He guided the team through a mere six games, winning only once against ENPPI, drawing twice against El-Short and Smouha, and losing three matches against Masry, Ahly and Wadi Degla.

Under leadership of Chairman Mohamed Abou El-Soud, the coastal club picked El-Kamash, a former Ismaily player and current coach of Egyptian Premier League club Ghazl El-Mahalla, to lead the team until end of the season. He is the third coach for Ismaily this season.

They began the season with Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam, 32, who is currently leading Zamalek- the holders of the Egyptian Premier League and Egypt Cup.

The three-time Egyptian Premier League champions Ismaily failed to finish in the top three last season, meaning that they were ineligible to play in any African-based competition.

Ismaily are currently eleventh in the league table with only 18 points from 14 games.
