“Zoran won the confidence of Ittihad supporters through the team’s good performances in the league this season. President of the Club Mohamed Mosselhy said stability is key for the team to have good results next season with the support of the club’s great fans,” according to a statement on the club’s website on Tuesday.

The 60-year-old tactician was appointed in the summer of 2022 on a one-season contract that was set to expire at the end of the current season.

Since his arrival, Manojlović has led Ittihad to fourth place in the Egyptian Premier League with 36 points out of 21 matches.

The club struggled in the league this past season and ended 12th with 38 points last season, 39 points behind champions Zamalek.

Manojlović was previously the coach for Angolan club Primeiro de Agosto (2017-2019), Morocco’s Wydad (2019-2020), Sudan’s Al-Hilal, Algeria’s CR Belouizdad, Saudi club Al-Tai (2021) and Simba of Tanzania (June-September 2022).

Manojlović’s achievements include winning the Algerian league title with CR Belouizdad in the 2020-2021 season and the Angola League and Super Cup titles with Primeiro de Agosto in 2018.
