RIP Mahmoud El Gohary



Legendary Egyptian coach, died yesterday after he suffered a stroke

Loved his 98 team which won the ACN, I remember too well how he said that we will finish 13th prior to that tournament.

Was criticized a lot for his defensive football (famously criticized by Ireland's coach in Italia 90), but that 98 side played nice football imho.

The 2nd goal we scored in the final against South Africa was one of the best taken set pieces I've ever seen. Straight from the training ground.

I was still a toddler when he led Egypt to the World Cup, but seeing as we're yet to make a WC since Italia 90, it sure makes his achievement all the more impressive. In that WC we gave a good performance against the Dutch, then European Champions.

A proper footballing man, RIP.

Legend Award - Mahmoud El-Gohary (Egypt)

El-Gohary is unarguably one of the most renowned faces in the history of Egyptian and African football. Born on February 20, 1938; he had a short playing career with Ahly, going on to win the Africa Cup of Nations in 1959 on home soil and finishing as topscorer. As coach of Egypt from 1988 to 2002, he guided the team to the 1990 FIFA World Cup after a 56-year absence.

He also steered the Pharaohs’ triumph at the 1998 Africa Cup of Nations, making him the only person to win the title as a player and coach. He also guided Ahly and Zamalek to African Club titles in 1982 and 1993.

El-Gohary also had a successful stint with Jordan from 2002 to 2007. He died on September 3 in Amman, Jordan.
