Former Ismaily player and El-Magd SC head coach, Adham El-Selhedar, died while celebrating his team’s goal in a Egyptian Second Division clash.

According to the report by Kingfut, Alexandria’s El-Magd were up against Al-Zarka in matchday nine of the season and the game seemed to be heading for a goalless draw.

The Alexandrian side, however, managed to score the winner in the 92nd minute to successfully secure the three points.

During the celebrations, El-Selhedar suddenly passed out and was immediately rushed to the hospital. He later died in the Al-Amriya hospital in Alexandria and it was revealed a heart-attack was the reason behind his death.

El-Selhedar spent the majority of his professional career with Ismaily during the 1990s and succeeded in lifting both the Egyptian Premier League and Egypt Cup titles.

After a brief spell with Al-Sharkia, he turned to coaching where he took charge of Libya’s Al-Ittihad and was even part of the Ismaily coaching staff.
