Pyramids FC sack coach Sebastien Desabre only months after hiring him

Pyramids have sacked coach Sebastien Desabre  following a poor run of results in the Egyptian Premier League this season.

The Cairo-based side are currently seventh in the Egyptian Premier League table with 12 points after eight games played.

As they dropped points against Aswan, Zamalek, and El-Gouna, Pyramids are now without a win since their 3-2 victory against Entag El-Harby back in October.

A 2-2 draw against newly-promoted side Aswan followed by 2-0 and 3-2 defeats to Zamalek and El-Gouna respectively have left the club’s fans and management in immense frustration.

Despite their poor domestic form, Pyramids have had a good start to their first-ever CAF Confederation Cup campaign as they top Group A with six points after two games played.

Overall, Desabre has managed Pyramids in 19 games, winning 12, drawing four games, losing three, including the Egypt Cup final against Zamalek.

Following Desabre’s departure, the club have named former Al Ahly head coach Abdel-Aziz Abdel-Shafy as an interim manager, with former Zamalek captain Mahmoud Fathallah as his assistant.

Abdel-Shafy had stints at Al Masry, Arab Contractors, Ittihad of Alexandria, Suez Cement, Lebanon’s Al Nejmeh, and Al Ahed, and most famously Cairo giants Al Ahly.

Meanwhile, this will become Mahmoud Fathallah’s first managerial job after hanging up his boots last September.
