FIFA sends in emergency team to run Egypt’s football body

ZURICH: Rocked by the surprise early exit of a national team featuring Mohamed Salah at its home African Cup of Nations last month, Egyptian soccer is getting an emergency management team from FIFA.
Football’s world body says it appointed a panel of four men and one woman to manage the Egypt football federation until fresh elections within one year.
Egypt’s round of 16 loss against South Africa resulted in coach Javier Aguirre and his staff being fired before federation president Hany Abo Rida and other board members resigned.
Abo Rida remains on FIFA’s ruling committee, where he has represented Africa for 10 years.
The Egypt federation is getting millions of dollars from FIFA for a project in Cairo to build a new headquarters and housing base for national teams.
