Martin Jol, 60, only took charge of Al Ahly in February, but he’s now looking for a new job.
Former Tottenham boss Martin Jol has resigned as Al Ahly coach following a run of poor benefits together with the Egyptian giants.
Al Ahly announced Jol’s departure on Thursday, just six months after the 60-year-old Dutchman was appointed.
Jol’s exit came on the back of the eight-time CAF Champions League winners’ elimination from the 2016 competition, and Al Ahly’s 3-1 loss to arch-rivals Zamalek within 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 read on the club’s official site.
In the course of Jol’s brief spell in charge, he did guide Al Ahly towards the Egyptian Premier League title last season.
Al Ahly will finish their Champions League campaign at ASEC Mimosas on August 24.
