Hassan Shehata (Egyptian Arabic: حسـن شحـاتة) (born 19 June 1949) is an Egyptianfootball coach and former player. He played for Zamalek FC and was given the award for Best Player in Asia in 1970. He was head coach of the Egyptian national team from 2004 to 2011, in the process becoming "the longest-serving coach in the history of the Egyptian national team." He led Egypt to three successive titles at the African Cup of Nations in the years 2006, 2008 and 2010. He thus became the second coach to win the trophy three times (a record) after Ghana's Charles Gyamfi, and the only one to win three consecutive cups. Egypt became the first African nation to achieve this streak/record. As a result of this the Egyptian Team were ranked as high as 9th in the FIFA World Rankings.
In 2008 he was awarded the title of CAF Coach of the Year. In 2010 he was the highest ranked African Coach in IFFHS. He was also selected as one of the top five African coaches.

In 2015 he became President of The SATUC Cup, a new charitable global football competition for U16 orphans, refugess and disadvantaged children.
During the African Cup semi-final against Senegal, Shehata had a serious row with Mido, when Mido reacted badly to being substituted. Shehata was vindicated minutes later when Amr Zaki, the player replacing Mido, scored the winning goal which took Egypt to the final. Shehata did allow Mido to accept his medal at the closing ceremonies of the African Cup of Nations, after Mido had made a public apology a few days before.
