CAIRO - 31 August 2019: Al-Ahly announced on Saturday that they have reached an agreement with Swiss manager, René Weiler, to be the first team new manager.

The club sacked their former manager, Martin Lasarte, after the team elimination from the Egyptian Cup, having lost to Pyramids at the round of 16.

Weiler is one of the promising managers in Europe and the highlight of his career was managing Belgian giants, Anderlecht, for one year.

Weiler’s best experience as a manager was in Switzerland where he managed FC Aarau, the team he represented as a player.

The Swiss manager led them to win promotion to the first division before leaving them in 2015 to Germany where he managed FC Nürnberg.

Al-Ahly fans are not satisfied with the team’s new manager as they expected the board to appoint one of the big names in Europe to lead the club.

Since 2013, Al-Ahly failed to win CAF Champions League title and the club fans are eager to win their beloved competition again.

The club will hold a press conference on Sunday to introduce the new manager to the club fans.
