Egyptian club Ismaily decided not to sign their Portuguese manager Pedro Barny for an extension, a statement read on Tuesday.
Barny, who took over as manager last winter, was the third coach to take charge of Ismaily this past season, succeeding Abou-Taleb El-Essawi who took over after the departure of Frenchman Sebastien Desabre.
Barny, 51, thanked Ismaily for his short spell at the club.
"It was a good experience full of victories except for some games," Barney told the coastal club's official website Tuesday.
Ismaily ended this season in second place of the Egyptian Premier League with 68 points, twenty less than winners Ahly.
"I really wanted to stay to continue applying my strategies but unfortunately this didn't happen," he added.
The Portuguese manager was no stranger to Egyptian football, having worked as an assistant to Ahly's former coach and compatriot Manuel José in the 2000s.
He had two previous stints as head coach with the Portuguese teams Boavista and Espinho.
Earlier this month, Ismaily ended their Egypt Cup bid in the semifinals after losing to Zamalek 1-4.
