Ex-Bafana Coach 'Leading Candidate' For Egypt Job

The Egyptian Football Association have confirmed that a former Bafana Bafana coach is a "leading candidate" to take over from Ehab Galal.

Galal was sacked as head coach this week after the side's unconvincing start to the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, following a surprise loss to Ethiopia last week.

The EFA could now look to replace Galal with the man who he replaced, Carlo Quieroz, in April earlier this year.

Quieroz parted ways with the national side after they lost to Senegal in the 2022 FIFA World Cup play-offs, while he did lead the team to the Africa Cup of Nations final.

“I respect Carlos Queiroz very much and the work he did with the Egyptian national team,” Emam said at the EFA’s press conference, according to KingFut.

“I know fans have criticised him for his defensive approach but the way they wanted him to play was difficult to achieve on the pitch.

“I haven’t spoken to Queiroz since he left the national team, but he is certainly one of the leading candidates to coach Egypt going forward.

“I will not reveal the names of the other candidates because we are still in talks. There is a large number of managers who are interested in this opportunity,” he added.
