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.
