Contracting new coach for Egypt's football team a priority: Amr El-Ganainy
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 22 - 08 - 2019

Hiring a new coach for Egypt's national football team has been established as a priority, according to head of the normalisation committee at the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) Amr El-Ganainy on Wednesday.
El-Ganainy promised Egyptian football was set to be back on the right track. The statement was one of El-Ganainy's earliest since he had been appointed head of the normalisation committee, formed on Tuesday night upon FIFA directives for the new committee to function until the upcoming elections.
"The necessity of changing the regulations of the statute – in force since 2011 — was FIFA's top priority while assigning the temporary committee to moderate the association," El-Ganainy told Nile Sports TV Channel.
FIFA's decision comes on the heels of the resignation of the EFA President Hany Abo Rida and board members after the national team's unceremonious exit from the Africa Cup of Nations, held in Egypt, in the 16th round in July.
The EFA was then temporarily managed by its Chief Executive Tharwat Sewilam, during which time a FIFA mission visited Cairo.
"We also want to use the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in the Egyptian Premier League. We know the feature is costly, but we are currently looking for a sponsor," El-Ganainy said.
Despite being a former Zamalek Club board member, El-Ganainy said he would stand at an equal distance from all football clubs, "be it Ahly, Zamalek, or any other club."
Before its resignation, the EFA board sacked coach Javier Aguirre of the national team after the early elimination from the Africa Cup of Nations. The coach's bench remains vacant.
"Hiring a new coach for the national team is one of the normalisation committee's top priorities. We are aiming for a top-level coach who can lead the Pharaohs in the coming period," El-Ganainy added.
