Adham El-Selhedar, a former Ismaily player and the head coach of El-Magd SC, died while celebrating his team’s goal in an Egyptian Second Division match.
According to Kingfut, Alexandria’s El-Magd faced Al-Zarka in the ninth matchday of the season, and the game appeared to be headed for a goalless draw.
The Alexandrians, on the other hand, scored the game-winning goal in the 92nd minute to capture the three points.
Coach El-Selhedar passed out unexpectedly during the celebrations and was brought to the hospital.
He died later in the Al-Amriya hospital in Alexandria, and it was later confirmed that he died of a heart attack.
During the 1990s, El-Selhedar spent the most of his professional career with Ismaily, winning both the Egyptian Premier League and the Egypt Cup.
