Volleyball federation studies replacing current coach
CAIRO –19 June 2017: The board of the Egyptian Volleyball Federation, headed by Fouad Abdel Salam, will hold a meeting in the next few days at their headquarters in Nasr City. According to Super Kora on Monday, the meeting is being held to discuss the potential replacement of the national volleyball team’s coach after a disappointing performance against Finland on Sunday.
The board will discuss whether or not coach Ibrahim Fakhreldin Mohamed, whose team won one out nine games played in the FIVB World League, will continue serving in his post.
Egypt lost in three clean sets against Finland on Sunday, relegating them to group three of the league. The match against Finland was held at the Cairo International Stadium.
The team needed a 3-0 victory in order to avoid relegation, but their loss placed Egypt at the bottom of the league table with only four points.
The federation is considering assigning the Brazilian coach Marcos Miranda, currently the under-23 coach, to lead the first team in the coming period, Super Kora reported.
