Egyptian giants Al Ahly have confirmed that they have parted ways with their head coach, Patrice Carteron.
Carteron was previously linked with the head coaching role at Kaizer Chiefs before management appointed Giovanni Solinas at the helm.
The Frenchman told KingFut that he had received offers from Mamelodi Sundowns and Chiefs prior to signing for Al Ahly, but negotiations with the Egyptian club progressed "rapidly" at the time.
"Negotiations were finalised rapidly. I will fight in order to lead Al Ahly to win titles and make the fans happy. I committed to my word with the Red Devils and terminated my deal with Phoenix Rising by mutual consent. I had other offers from Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs but the priority was definitely for Al Ahly," Carteron said at the time.
However, the Egyptian giants have now confirmed they have parted ways with the Frenchman.
"The Board of Directors of the Ahli Club decided to dismiss Patrice Carteron and coach Michael Lindeman; The Council also decided to entrust captain Sayed Abdel Hafeez with the work of the director of the ball, and assigned captain Mohamed Yusuf as temporary technical director for the first team until the conclusion of the contract with a technical director and a new team crew," Al Ahly said via their official Twitter account (loosely translated from Arabic).
