Pyramids FC sack Arruabarrena, appoint Takis Gonias

Pyramids FC’s nightmare of a season only got worse with their crushing penalty kick shootout defeat to Morocco’s Raja Casablanca in the CAF Confederation Cup semifinals on Sunday, adding more misery obtained from an Egyptian Premier League campaign that sees the deep pocketed side currently sitting in 10th place. Argentinean coach Rodolfo Arruabarrena was on the hot seat all season with the only thing appearing to keep the manager in charge being that Pyramids did not want to pay his pricey release clause, but the CAFCC defeat has forced the ownership’s hand with news of Arruabarrena’s dismissal on Tuesday.

KingFut has the report on the coaching change at Pyramids. Arruabarrena accumulated 18 wins, 12 draws and 7 losses during his spell at Pyramids, who get set for a crucial league match against defending Egyptian Premier League champions Al Ahly on Thursday with new Greek manager Takis Gonias.
