Coach collapses, dies while celebrating goal


An Egyptian manager has sadly passed away after collapsing while celebrating his team’s last-minute winner on Thursday.

Tragedy broke in the Egyptian second tier after El-Magd SC head coach Adham El-Selhedar passed away following his side’s dramatic stoppage-time victory over Al-Zarka.

The Alexandria-based club were being held to a 0-0 stalemate before they netted in the 92nd minute of the game, which sent the players and the coaching staff into wild celebrations, per KingFut.

However, during the celebrations, El-Selhedar collapsed, and was then rushed to the Al-Amriya hospital.

It was later confirmed that the manager had passed away due to a heart attack.


El-Selhedar was previously the caretaker manager of Egyptian top-flight side Ismaily for two spells during the 2019/20 season, the same club he represented as a player and won several titles with, including the Egyptian Premier League and Egypt Cup crowns, per KingFut. Kickoff
