SAD: Egyptian Coach Dies While Celebrating 92nd Winner

An Egyptian coach for second division side El-Magd, Adham El-Selhedar, died while celebrating his team’s goal.


Alexandria’s El-Magd were up against Al-Zarka in matchday nine of the season and the game seemed to be heading for a goalless draw.


The Alexandrian side, however, managed to score the winner in the 92nd minute to successfully secure the three points.


During the celebrations, El-Selhedar suddenly passed out and was immediately rushed to the hospital.


He later died in the Al-Amriya hospital in Alexandria and it was revealed a heart-attack was the reason behind his death.


El-Selhedar spent the majority of his professional career with Ismaily during the 1990s and succeeded in lifting both the Egyptian Premier League and Egypt Cup titles.


After a brief spell with Al-Sharkia, he turned to coaching where he took charge of Libya’s Al-Ittihad and was even part of the Ismaily coaching staff.
