MBABNE – Sihlangu must master counter-play to Spanish football.


Former Spain and Real Madrid right back Michel Salgado has been appointed as assistant coach to the Egypt national team, the country’s football association announced early last week.
Salgado began working with head coach, Javier Aguirre, ahead of their AFCON qualifier game against Niger this past Sunday.
This is according to information sourced from as.com.


The formidable Pharaohs whacked Niger 6 – 0 in their second AFCON qualifier game.
Egypt failed to win any of their last nine games since defeating Congo 2-1 in a World Cup qualifier on 8 October 2017.
The arrival of Salgado inspired their 6 – 0 victory against Niger, ending their streak of winless games.
Salgado was quoted on his tweeter page to have written, “It’s an honour to be part of the coaching staff for Egypt, it is my first job and there are so many things to learn but I will put all my heart to do my best.”


The 42-year-old Spaniard is already working with the Pharaohs as the team prepares for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at home against Sihlangu.
At the AFCON qualifiers, the Pharaohs made a defective start losing 1-0 to Tunisia in Rades.
Salgado played more than 250 times for Real Madrid and earned 53 international call-ups with the Spanish national side.
The Spaniard joins the also retired defender Hany Ramzy as assistants to the Mexican tactician Aguirre, who was appointed as Héctor Cúper’s replacement following Egypt’s disappointing performance at this year’s World Cup in Russia.
