Factbox: Egypt's legendary coach Mahmoud El-Gohary
Factbox on Egyptian coach Mahmoud El-Gohary, who died on .... aged 74 after suffering a brain stroke
Published in Ahram Online on 03 - 09 - 2012

*Born: February 20, 1938 in Cairo
*Had an unglamorous and short playing stint with Cairo giants Ahly that lasted from 1955 to 1961. He was the top scorer of Egypt's triumphant Nations Cup campaign in 1959 with three goals but prematurely ended his playing career two years later due to a persistent knee injury.
Management highlights
*Began his coaching career with Saudi Arabia's Ittihad Jeddah in 1981 but moved back to Egypt to take charge of boyhood club Ahly one year later.
*Led the Red Devils to a remarkable achievement in his first year in charge, helping them win their first ever African Champions Cup, the old version of the Champions League, in 1982.
*Led Ahly to the 1984 African Cup Winners Cup title before having brief spells with UAE side Al-Sharjah and Saudi Arabia's Ahly Jeddah.
*Took charge of the Egyptian national team for the first time in 1988, helping them reach the World Cup in Italy two years later, which was only their second appearance at the football's most prestigious event.
*Egypt opened their World Cup campaign with a stunning 1-1 draw with then European champions Netherlands before drawing 0-0 with Ireland and 1-1 with England to bow out from the group stage.
*Left the Pharaohs after the World Cup but returned to the team to lead them at the 1992 Nations Cup in Senegal, where they lost their three games to suffer an embarrassing first-round exit.
*El-Gohary then made a surprise move after taking charge of Ahly's arch-rivals Zamalek in 1993 to become the first Egyptian coach to manage the two bitter Cairo foes.
*He enjoyed a highly-successful spell with Zamalek, helping them win the Champions League in 1993 and the African Super Cup one year later following a 1-0 victory over Ahly in Johannesburg, South Africa.
*He then had two spells with UAE side Al-Wehda and Oman's national team before taking charge of Egypt for a third stint in 1997.
*He defied doubters after leading Egypt to an unlikely Nations Cup triumph in 1998 in Burkina Faso to become the first one to win the tournament as a player and coach but was dismissed one year later when Egypt suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat by Saudi Arabia in the FIFA Confederations Cup in Mexico.
*The Egyptian Football Association brought him back for a fourth spell after sacking French manager Gerard Gili following the 2000 Nations Cup.
*Under his guidance, Egypt narrowly missed out on a place at the 2002 World Cup after a tough qualifying campaign and were knocked out of the Nations Cup at the hands of Cameroon in the quarter finals.
*Was appointed as Jordan's coach in 2002 and quickly turned around their fortunes, helping them to a remarkable place at the 2004 AFC Asian Cup for their best-ever achievement.
*Briefly served as the Egyptian Football Association technical manager but resigned in 2009 over disagreements with the board of directors.
*Worked as an adviser to the Jordanian Football Association from 2009 to 2012.
