USM Algiers is expected to appoint Egyptian coach Hossam El Badry as the new head of their technical team. This move comes as the club gears up for the next season, replacing the outgoing Spaniard Carlos Garrido.

A New Chapter for USM Algiers

As the transfer of Algerian international Zinedine Belaid to Cairo’s Al Ahly inches closer to completion, USM Algiers is set to bring in a seasoned Egyptian coach to guide the Rouge et Noir.

Hossam El Badry, a former coach of the Egyptian national team and several top Egyptian clubs, including Al Ahly, is tipped to take over the helm.

El Badry’s experience in the Algerian championship is not entirely new; he briefly coached ES Sétif between July and November 2022.

His tenure there was cut short due to inadequate resources provided by the club’s management, limiting his ability to implement his vision.

A Decorated Career with Highs and Lows

Hossam El Badry boasts an illustrious career both as a player and a coach. As a former Egyptian international, his list of accolades is impressive.

He has secured 22 local and continental titles throughout his career.

During his playing days with Al Ahly, El Badry won four league championships, three Egypt Cups, two African Champions Leagues, and three African Super Cups.

His coaching career has been equally distinguished, with three national titles, one Egypt Cup, three Egyptian Super Cups, one African Champions League, and one African Super Cup to his name.

Additionally, he led Sudan’s Al-Merrikh to a league championship in 2011.

This season saw El Badry coaching Iraq’s Al-Zawra Club, but he departed in March citing personal reasons.

Despite his successes, El Badry has faced significant setbacks, including the Egyptian Olympic team’s failure to qualify for the Rio de Janeiro Olympics and his subsequent replacement by Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz after qualifying the senior team for AFCON 2021.

Looking Ahead

USM Algiers’ potential appointment of Hossam El Badry reflects the club’s ambition to leverage his extensive experience and strategic acumen.

El Badry’s familiarity with North African football dynamics and his track record of success could provide the necessary impetus for USM Algiers to achieve their aspirations in the upcoming season.

The football community in Algeria and beyond will be watching closely to see how El Badry’s tenure unfolds and whether his expertise will steer USM Algiers to new heights.

As the club prepares for this transition, fans are hopeful that this seasoned coach will bring stability and success to the Rouge et Noir.
