The board of directors of the Egyptian Port Said club, headed by Samir Halabiya, agreed with the Tunisian Mouin Al-Shaabani, the former technical director of the Tunisian Esperance, to lead the coastal team next season, provided that the technical director arrives within the next few hours to formally sign the contracts.
Moein El Shaabani has a strong biography, as he won the African Champions League in 2018 and 2019 with Esperance, and is the youngest coach in history to win the African Champions League title at the age of 37.
Al-Masry officials sent airline tickets to the Tunisian coach to come to Port Said today to hold a special session with the board of directors and formally sign contracts after negotiations that lasted 24 hours between the two parties, which were ultimately successful after the approval of the green administration on the financial requests of the technical director.
Al-Masry’s board of directors tried to contract with a technical director who has a strong biography and strong African experience, especially as the team is about to participate in the African Confederation next season.
During his recent experience in the world of training with Tunisian Esperance, Mouin El Shaabani led Bab Souika in 131 matches, winning 85 matches, drawing 25 matches and losing 21 matches.
The last match of Moein El Shaabani with Tunisian Esperance was against Al-Ahly in the semi-final round of the African Champions League, and he lost 3-0 without a response in Cairo, and before that he lost from the Red Genie with a goal without a response back in Rades to bid farewell to the tournament and the Tunisian champion decides to dismiss him.
