Egyptian side Pyramids FC have terminated the contract of Greek coach Takis Gonias after less than three months spent leading the team, thanking him for the short time he led the Premier League side.

The 49-year old tactician Gonias was named as Pyramids FC coach last June, replacing Argentinean boss Rodolfo Arruabarrena who was sacked after missing out on a place in the final of Africa's secondary club competition Confederation Cup.

"Pyramids FC's management thanks Greek coach Takis Gonias for the time he spent with team in the past months," read a statement on the club's official website on Saturday.

Pyramids FC have reportedly reached an agreement with Egyptian coach Ihab Galal, who recently left Ismaily. Galal helped the Dervishes to stay in the Egyptian League after their poor starting run.

Gonias led Pyramids FC in 12 games in the Egyptian Premier League last season, claiming five victories, six draws and one loss.

The Greek coach had previous experience in the Egyptian league, managing Degla for almost two years. He was sacked in February 2020 following a string of disappointing results.

Pyramids FC finished the Egyptian Premier League last season in third place with 55 points to book a place in the Confederation Cup's new season.
