Talaat Youssef apologized for not completing his mission with Al-Ittihad of Alexandria, so the latter began the journey of research to reach the new coach.
The Federation President said: “Within the next 72 hours, the new technical director of the Alexandria Federation will be announced.”
In his statements on the Sada Al-Balad channel, he added, “There is a dispute between 3 Egyptian coaches and we have already spoken with them, and negotiations are advanced with two names from the trio.”
He continued, “Hossam Hassan is among the three candidates to lead the Union of Alexandria.”
He continued, saying: “The new coach may assume leadership of the federation in the remaining matches of the season, or he may take over from the beginning of the next season, according to the agreement.”
He concluded, “We do not want pressure from the supporters of Al-Ittihad of Alexandria and the decision within 72 hours.”
Hossam Hassan, 54, previously coached Al Ittihad Club of Alexandria, specifically in the 2014-15 season.
Hossam Hassan led Al-Ittihad in 35 games at the time, winning 12 times, drawing 13 times and losing 10 matches.
Hossam Hassan’s last appearance in the coach’s seat was with Smouha before he left in January of this year.
