Ex-Orlando Pirates coach De Sa confirms taking up role as Egypt assistant coach

Roger de Sa, a former Orlando Pirates assistant coach, has confirmed that he will serve as the new associate mentor for the Egyptian public group.

De Sa will reunite with former Bafana mentor Carlos Queiroz, who was appointed as the new Pharaohs supervisor just a few days before the match.

In an interview with Power FM on Thursday, De Sa revealed that he will be traveling to Egypt on Monday to secure all of the required endorsements.

"Well, I'm the associate mentor," says the speaker. I'll be departing on Monday. It happened in a short period of time. These types of employment do not come around very often. "You have to seek the open door and go for it," De Sa stated emphatically.

De Sa went on to argue that Queiroz's efforts to lure him over as his partner were not solely for his own benefit, and that the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) also required his services.

Although he refused to acknowledge it at the time, De Sa ultimately said that Queiroz played a significant role in convincing him to leave South Africa for the Pharaohs.

"This was not the only thing Carlos required of me. It was also a decision made by the organization itself.

"Carlos compelled me to accept the position. That was always going to be a factor, and he has his own set of approaches," he explained further.

During the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, the pair worked together, with De Sa playing an essential role in Queiroz's specialized group for the Portuguese team.
