Egyptian National Team Coach Queiroz Reportedly Wants Former Pirates Coach To Become His Assistant

https://www.idiskitimes.co.za/international/queiroz-to-pick-sa-assistant/ According to rumours that emerged over the weekend, Carlos Queiroz, the new coach of the Egyptian national team, has appointed South African Roger De Sa as his assistant.

It is expected that De Sa will rejoin Queiroz, who was appointed Egypt's coach last week despite the fact that he was born in Mozambique.

With Queiroz as a Bafana Bafana coach and with the Portugal national team at the 2010 World Cup, the former Pirates, Bidvest Wits, and Ajax Cape Town coach has been appointed as an assistant.

De Sa was born in Mozambique to parents who were both former Sporting Lisbon goalkeepers. His father, Octavio, was also a former Sporting Lisbon goalkeeper.

He is currently the captain of the Cape Town All-Stars in the GladAfrica Championship, which is taking place this year.

After guiding the Buccaneers to the CAF Champions League final in 2013, in which they played both Al Ahly and Zamalek, De Sa has become a household name in the Egyptian football community. They fell to Ahly in the final, but not before beating Zamalek 4-1 in a group that featured the two Egyptian heavyweights, Cairo and Alexandria.

Egyptian National TeamsAfter leaving Pirates, there have been reports that he was contacted by an Egyptian club, which he denied. Queiroz is expected to go to Egypt this week to complete the terms of his and De Sa's agreements.

On Wednesday, the Egyptian Football Association announced that Carlos Queiroz had been appointed as the country's next national team coach, but the organization did not reveal the terms of his contract.

After stepping down as coach of Colombia last year, the 68-year-old will take over as head coach of his sixth different national team.

As a coach, Queiroz has worked with his native Portugal on two separate occasions, as well as the United Arab Emirates, South Africa, and Iran, whom he guided to the World Cup finals in Brazil and Russia the last two years.

In their previous two matches, Egypt defeated Angola 1-0 in Cairo on Wednesday and drew 1-1 in Gabon on Sunday, ensuring that El Badry remains undefeated in his first two years in charge.
