Egypt appoint new Pharaohs’ boss Ehab Galal

Egypt appoint new Pharaohs’ boss Ehab Galal

Egypt have appointed Ehab Galal as the new national coach of the Pharaohs, succeeding Carlos Queiroz, BBC Sports reports.

Galal, 54, has been in charge of big-spending Pyramids since September, guiding the Cairo-based outfit to the quarter-finals of the Caf Confederation Cup.

Queiroz only joined Egypt last September but parted ways with the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) after failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup last month.

The North Africans missed out on a place in Qatar after being beaten by Senegal on penalties – having also lost the Africa Cup of Nations final in February to the same opposition on spot-kicks.

Galal, who leaves Pyramids third in the Egyptian league, has managed several club sides including Zamalek, El Masry, El Makkasa, Ismaily and Al Ahly Tripoli.

Record seven-time African champions Egypt await the 2023 Nations Cup qualifying group draw, which will take place on Tuesday, 19 April.

Ivory Coast part ways with Patrice Beaumelle

Ivory Coast part ways with Patrice Beaumelle

Ivory Coast’s football federation (FIF) has decided against renewing the contract of national team coach Patrice Beaumelle, whose original deal ended last week, BBC Sports reports. 

The 43-year-old failed to lead the Elephants to the play-offs for the 2022 World Cup, with the West Africans then suffering a last-16 exit at the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.

Two-time African champions Ivory Coast were beaten by Egypt on penalties following a 0-0 draw in Cameroon.

After failing to progress from their World Cup qualifying group, Frenchman Beaumelle accused world governing body Fifa of “killing African football” by only allowing five spots for the continent at the tournament.

Beaumelle, who was assistant to Herve Renard when the Ivorians won the Nations Cup in 2015, had been in charge of the side since March 2020.

He previously had a stint in charge of Zambia, having also served as Renard’s assistant with the Chipolopolo.

A normalisation committee, installed by Fifa, is running FIF ahead of presidential elections on 23 April and announced the decision on Monday.

“The committee salutes [Beaumelle’s] human qualities, commitment, professionalism, humility and discretion,” a statement on the FIF website said.

“While welcoming the open-mindedness of the French technician and the good collaboration with the FIF, the committee wishes him a happy continuation of his career.”

Ivory Coast become the latest African country to part company with their boss, with Burkina Faso and Mali also searching for new coaches.

The Elephants await the draw for the group stage of qualifying for the 2023 Nations Cup – a tournament Ivory Coast is set to host – which will take place on Tuesday, 19 April.
