A source in the Football Association said to FilGoal.com: “Vingada is close to succeeding Mahmoud Saad as coach of the Football Association.”
He continued, “The Portuguese arrived today in Cairo and held a lengthy meeting with Ahmed Mujahid, head of the tripartite committee and a member of the board of directors for several hours in a hotel.”
“The matter and stability were discussed in all the details, and the Portuguese will prepare a plan for all competitions and the development of the federation,” he added.
And he added, “Then more than another meeting was held at the headquarters of the Football Association with the Portuguese, and Vingada will fly to his country tomorrow, and then return a few days later to sign the contracts and announce the plan to develop the federation and competitions.”
Vingada led Zamalek in the 2003-2004 season and crowned the league championship with a record unbeaten run, after winning the Arab Championship and the Egyptian Saudi Super Cup.
Vingada led the Egyptian Olympic team but left after failing to qualify for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
The Portuguese coach was just around the corner from assuming the leadership of Al-Ahly to succeed Manuel Jose in 2009, but he apologized for not assuming the responsibility for family reasons after days of the agreement.
