Egypt FA wants Bradley out
There are dissenting voices within the corridors of power as, on one side, Egypt’s Football Association President Gamal Allam has the coach to step down and let another figure lead the return leg.
But the spokesperson of the body holds another view.
“We will ask the coach during the meeting what led to this humiliating defeat. We will also discuss his future, but it is likely that he will stay in charge until the return leg to avoid the release clause,” Egypt FA spokesman Azmi Megahed told a sports TV program.
That emergency meeting will be held next Monday to discuss the national team’s crushing 6-1 defeat.
The big loss severely dented the Pharaohs’ dream of getting the World Cup for the first time since 1990.
The American tactician’s contract expires at the end of the World Cup qualifiers but if he is sacked before the second leg, he will have to be paid $45,000.
The Pharaohs are scheduled to host Ghana on 19 November in Cairo and need a five-goal margin victory to maintain their hopes of reaching the World Cup finals.
