Following their 1-0 loss to Bafana Bafana in Cairo in the round of 16 of the African Cup of Nations, the Egyptian FA president who sacked the Pharaoh coach has resigned.

Hany stated his resignation and called on the federation board to resign.

The resignation had been announced on the country’s Twitter account.

The tweet translates thus: “Hani Abu Reidah announced his resignation from the presidency of the Egyptian Football Federation and also invited the members of the Board of Directors of the Union to resign, following the departure of the first national team from the round of 16 of the Africa Cup currently organized in Egypt.”

The Egyptian team who had not won a trophy in the last nine years sought to make amends in the AFCON on home soil but disappointed their fans after their loss in the round of 16 to South Africa.
