Despite extending his stay with Hull City until 2019, Egypt winger Ahmed Elmohamady's future with Hull City is in doubt after his coach and mentor Steve Bruce announced his departure on Friday.

The Hull City manager resigned three weeks before the new season and days after being interviewed for the vacant England job, the BBC reported.

Bruce, who was in contention to replace Roy Hodgson as England manager before the Football Association recommended Sam Allardyce for the position, guided Hull back to the Premier League from the Championship last season.

The BBC reported that Bruce, 55, had wanted assurances about his role with Hull who put takeover talks on hold until September.

The club are suffering an injury crisis with only 13 fit players available before their Premier League campaign begins with a home game against champions Leicester City on Aug. 13.

Bruce has been at Hull for four years, steering them into the Premier League in 2013, before spending two seasons in the top flight and dropping back into the championship.

The English tactician brought Elmohamady, 28, to the Premier League in 2010 when he was at Sunderland. 

After Bruce left Sunderland in 2011, Elmohamady struggled to keep his place in the team until he was paired again with his mentor at the Tigers in 2012.

Under the helm of Bruce, Elmohamady has made a total of 180 appearances for Hull, to be the most capped player in the side and helping them gain promotion to the Premier League again this season.
