Egyptian side Ismaily announced on Thursday that they have accepted the resignation of Bosnian coach Dragan Jovic, with reports suggesting that Maqassa coach Ihab Galal will replace him as the team's new manager.

Jovic took charge of the team last January, replacing interim coach Mohamed Wahba.

Under his guidance Ismaly failed to register a single win in seven league games, losing four and conceding three draws.

The coastal side is in a critical situation in the league table as they lie second from bottom with 11 points from 16 games.  

The three-time Egyptian champions started the season with Brazilian coach Heron Ferreira, who lost his post due to the team's poor results in the domestic league.

Veteran coach Talaat Youssef succeeded the Brazilian boss, but he resigned after 48 hours, saying that the club's management did not meet his requirements.

Interim coaches Abou Taleb Al-Essawi and Mohamed Wahba took charge of the team for short spells before Bosnian coach Jovic, who resigned after around two months, was named.
