Martin Jol, 60, only took charge of Al Ahly in February, but he’s now trying to find a brand new job.
Former Tottenham boss Martin Jol has resigned as Al Ahly coach following a run of poor outcomes with the Egyptian giants.
Al Ahly announced Jol’s departure on Thursday, just six months soon after the 60-year-old Dutchman was appointed.
Jol’s exit came around the back in the eight-time CAF Champions League winners’ elimination from the 2016 competition, and Al Ahly’s 3-1 loss to arch-rivals Zamalek in the Egypt Cup final on August eight.
“Ahly have amicably terminated the contract of Martin Jol at his request. He is going to be replaced within the interim by his assistant Ossama Orabi,” a statement study around the club’s official internet site.
In the course of Jol’s brief spell in charge, he did guide Al Ahly for the Egyptian Premier League title final season.
Al Ahly will finish their Champions League campaign at ASEC Mimosas on August 24.
