Egypt Appoints Carlos Queiroz As New Head Coach

Egypt have named Portuguese manager Carlos Queiroz as head coach of senior national team on Wednesday.

The 68-year-old tactician comes as a replacement of Hossam El-Badry’s replacement following his sacking on Monday after a 1-1 draw to Gabon in World Cup qualifiers.

Queiroz will be supported by Diaa El-Sayed and long-time former national team goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary on his coaching staff.

The details of the contract have not been disclosed by Egyptian Football Federation.

The Egypt job is the Portuguese’s second in Africa after previously in charge of South Africa where he was in-charge for two years from 2000, taking the team to the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals and qualifying them for the 2002 World Cup.

He was fired before the World Cup in South Korea and went on to lead Portugal (2010) and Iran (2014, 2018) in subsequent editions.

Queiroz guided Real Madrid for one year from 2003, either side of spells as senior assistant to Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

His most recent job was coach of Colombia, who sacked him last December with the nation lying seventh in the 10-team South American 2022 World Cup qualifying group.

Egypt will resume their World Cup qualifiers in next month with a back-to-back matches against Angola before playing Gabon in November.
