Al Shorta have appointed Egyptian coach Mohamed Youssef as manager of the club ahead of the 2016-17 season.
Youssef managed Al Shorta previously in the 2014-15 season, leading the club to an impressive eleven league wins, four league draws and zero league defeats as well as their biggest ever AFC Cup win (a 6-2 victory over Taraji Wadi Al Nes which has since been equalled).
He was surprisingly sacked by the previous administration despite the club's impressive record, and Al Shorta have formally apologised to Youssef for the unprofessional way in which the sacking was conducted.
Since then, the former CAF Champions League winner took on the role of manager of Egyptian club Smouha at the start of the 2015-16 season but was sacked after just three league games. He rejoins Al Shorta at a time of rebuilding and therefore is expected to be given enough time to build his own team and lead the club to good domestic results again after the disappointing 2015-16 campaign.
