Reports: A great coach is close to leading the Egyptian national team

Egyptian media reported that the Egyptian Football Association agreed to dismiss Rui Vitoria from coaching the Egypt national team.

The Portuguese coach’s contract in the Nile country is still extended until the 2026 World Cup, but failure in the African Cup of Nations and mediocre performance were enough to terminate the contract now.

Negotiations are currently taking place between Egypt and Vitoria due to the large penalty clause in his contract, and it is assumed that the two parties will reach a solution in the coming hours.

But the surprise that was sparked by the Egyptian media comes about who will succeed Vitoria in coaching the Pharaohs.

According to the publication, Hervé Renard, the former coach of Morocco and Saudi Arabia, and the current coach of the women’s national team of France, has become close to coaching the Egyptian national team.

The Frenchman has a contract with his country’s women until the 2024 Paris Olympics next August, and it was previously announced that he will leave at the end of participation in the competition.

Egypt finds itself in great competition with Algeria, which is also seeking to sign Renard to succeed Jamal Belmadi.

But according to what Egyptian journalists indicated, Egypt has become the most likely to sign Renard, in a move postponed from 2011, after negotiations between the two parties reached a very advanced and positive point.

It is noteworthy that Egypt tried to include Renard as a replacement for historical coach Hassan Shehata in 2011, but he chose to continue with the Zambian national team at that time.
