Mario Palma arrives in Cairo today to train Al-Ahly basket


Mario Palma, the new technical director of the Al-Ahly basketball team, arrives today in Cairo to take over the task with the red team, succeeding Ashraf Tawfiq, who submitted his resignation and was accepted by the Al-Ahly board of directors.

It is scheduled that the Portuguese coach will hold a session with the board of directors to discuss all the details and terms of the agreement related to training the team, as well as the goal in the upcoming matches in the Super Basketball League championship.

Al-Youm Al-Sabea learned that Al-Ahly officials allocated a large sum of money as a reward for Al-Khawaja if he was crowned with the local title, as Al-Ahmar climbed to the semi-final round of the tournament alongside Al-Ittihad, Al-Jazirah, Zamalek and Sporting.

It is decided that the new technical director will be assisted by Mario Gomez from Portugal as well, Ahmed El-Garhy, assistant coach, in addition to Tariq Al-Ghanem as an administrative manager.

Ashraf Tawfiq, the technical director of the basketball team, at the Al-Ahly club, resigned from his post, in light of the recent decline in results and the loss of several tournaments, the most recent of which was the Egyptian Cup against Al-Ittihad of Alexandria, which ended with the victory of the leader of Al-Thaghr 78/76, and the coronation of the local championship.

Al-Ahly lost the Egyptian Cup and Super League last season against Al-Ittihad of Alexandria, and the Egypt Cup in the current season, and the Super League remains ahead of it, and meets with Al-Ittihad in the Super Cup, which Al-Ahly also lost last January with Ashraf Tawfik.
