Al Ahly have sacked French coach Patrice Carteron following back to back disappointments.

The Egyptian giants lost to regional rivals Esperance de Tunis in the CAF Champions League finals two weeks ago and was yesterday knocked out of the Arab Championship leading to his sacking.

Carteron returned to the Cairo-based side mid this year with a clear instruction to deliver the elusive ninth Champions League title but failed with Esperance bagging their third instead.

Overall, Carteron led Al Ahly in 21 games across all competitions, winning 12, drawing five and losing three.

The club has also let go conditioning coach Michael Linderman and announced that Sayed Abdel-Hafiz will return to the club as the new director of football.
