CAIRO - Former France coach Henri Michel added yet another club to his lengthening list on Tuesday when Egyptian giants Zamalek hired him as their new coach, the club announced.
The 59-year-old veteran signed a six-month, $180000 deal and has been given the task of getting the side back on terms with bitter rivals Ahly, who they trail by six points.
Michel, who was sacked by Qatari club Al-Arabi last month, experienced one of his best moments in his career in Cairo when he guided Ivory Coast to the African Nations Cup final in February where they lost on penalties to Egypt.
Michel, who also took Ivory Coast to their first World Cup finals this year where they performed honourably, finishing third in a group which included Argentina and the Netherlands, takes over from caretaker coach Ahmed Ramzi, who had taken over after Portugal's Manuel Cajuda was sacked earlier this month.
The White Knights sit third in the table after 12 games, six points behind Ahly, who won back-to-back African Champions League titles and are still basking in the glory of the Club World Cup bronze medal clinched earlier this month.
Michel took France to the 1986 World Cup semifinals and has also been to football's showpiece with Morocco, Tunisia and Cameroon. - Sapa-AFP
