Egyptian coach Hossam El-Badry decides to end his spell in the Sudanese league after only one season


Egyptian coach Hossam El-Badry has officially resigned from his post as Sudan’s Merriekh head coach on Monday.

“I have reached an agreement with Merriekh’s president Gamal El-Wali to end my contract,” El-Badry told a TV program.

The resignation of the 51-year-old coach came only few hours after he lead the Sudanese giants to win the Sudanese Premier League title, following the 1-0 win over Khartoum in the tournament’s last round on Sunday.

 “I’m happy to win the title, but I want to leave Merriekh – although they want me to stay,” El-Badry told an Egyptian radio station earlier on Monday.

Club president Gamal El-Wali met the Egyptian manager on Sunday to offer him a contract extension, but El-Badry, who signed a two-year contract with them last December, reportedly insists on leaving.

Merriekh delivered outstanding performances this season under the guidance of Egypt’s Ahly former coach, El-Badry, to end the tournament on high note winning 24 games out of 25.

El-Badry won the Egyptian Premier League and Egypt Super Cup with the Cairo giants before he was released. He was succeeded by Ahly’s favorite coach, the Portuguese Manuel Jose.
