Mohamed Youssef (born 9 October 1970) is a retired Egyptian professional footballer who played as a defender for several clubs in Egypt and Turkey. He is currently the manager of Iraqi club Al Shorta.

Club career[edit]

Youssef began his professional career in the Egyptian Premier League with Al-Ahly, winning six league titles over an eight-year period. In 1999, he moved to Turkey where he played in the Super Lig for Denizlispor and Diyarbakirspor. He returned to Egypt to play with Egyptian Premier League side Al-Mokawloon al-Arab.[1]

International career[edit]

Youssef was the captain for Egypt team in 1992 Summer Olympics and scored a goal against Colombia.[2] He made his debut with the first national team in a 1994 African Nations Cup qualifier against Morocco on 11 July 1993. Youssef made 51 appearances for Egypt national football team, including three matches at the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup, three qualifying matches for the 1998 FIFA World Cup and two qualifying matches for the 2002 FIFA World Cup.[3] He won with Egypt the 1998 African Nations Cup,[4] and also played in the 1994 African Nations Cup [5] and 2000 African Nations Cup.

Coaching career[edit]

Youssef began his coaching career as Hossam El-Badry's assistant at Al-Ahly in June 2009. Although El-Badry left on 22 November 2010, he remained as assistant manager at the club until El-Badry rejoined in May 2012. In late April 2013, Youssef was promoted caretaker manager, replacing El-Badry, who ended his second spell. Al-Ahly announced he would be in charge of the club until the end of the 2012–13 season.[6] In June 2013, Youssef was eventually given the job on a permanent basis.[7] He led Al-Ahly defending his title in 2013 CAF Champions League, won it and reached the 2013 FIFA Club World Cup. However, defending champions Al-Ahly were eliminated in the 2014 CAF Champions League, losing to the Libyan side Al-Ahly Benghazi in the second round of the Group Stage. On 1 May 2014, he stepped down as Al-Ahly manager.[8] On 23 July of the same year, he was appointed as manager of Iraqi Premier League champions Al Shorta SC.[9] Despite winning 11 and drawing 4 of the 15 league games he took charge of, he was sacked in May 2015. Reasons cited for the sacking include the club's disappointing results in the AFC Cup as well as Youssef leaving to Cairo after a match without informing the club which violated the terms in his contract.
