CAIRO – 9 May 2018: Egyptian Handball Federation announced on Tuesday that they have reached an agreement with former Spanish handball player, David Davis, to manage the national team.

The Spaniard will sign his contract on Tuesday night to start his journey with the Pharaohs.

Davis will succeed Marwan Ragab who managed the national team between 2013 and 2018.

The Handball Federation thanked Ragab for his efforts with the team in the last five years; he led the team to achieve the 2016 African Cup of Nations title in Egypt.

Ragab lost his position as the team manager after losing the 2018 African Cup of Nations title to Tunisia.

Davis will lead the national team at the 2019 World Men's Handball Championship in Denmark and Germany between January 7 and 29.

Davis has had an amazing career as a handball player, winning three Champions League titles in 2006, 2008 and 2009 when he played for BM Ciudad Real.

He also won the Bronze medal with the Spanish national team at 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.

The Spanish started his managing career in 2014 as an assistant manager to Raúl González at Macedonia’s RK Vardar, leading the team to achieve the 2017 Champions League title.
