Al Ahly fire Patrice Carteron after 2nd championship exit in one month
Al Ahly SC fired French coach Patrice Carteron following Al Ahly’s exit from the Arab Club Championship.
After a disappointing 2-2 draw at home in the first-leg against Al-Wasl last month, Ahly desperately needed to win away in the UAE tonight but were held to a 1-1 draw by the Emirati side, exiting the regional tournament on the away goal rule.
French manager Carteron took over Al Ahly last June, replacing Hossam El-Badry, and guided them to the CAF Champions League final, which the Reds lost to Esperance.
