Egyptian Football Manager Tragically Dies From Heart Attack While Celebrating Last-Minute Winner

An Egyptian football manager has sadly died after suffering a heart attack while celebrating his side's last-minute winner.

El Magd boss Adham El-Selhadar tragically passed away at the age of 53 after watching his team beat El Zarqa in an Egyptian Second League match on Thursday.

He was rushed to hospital after having a heart attack during the celebrations following El Magd's 92nd minute winner.

El-Selhadar enjoyed managerial spells at Al Ahly SC and Ismaily SC, who both released emotional statements in wake of his death.

Al Ahly's statement reads: "Captain Mahmoud Al-Khatib, president of the club, and the members of the board of directors, mourn with great sadness and sorrow, Coach Adham El-Selhadar, the former Ismaily player, who passed away on Thursday, praying to the Almighty to cover the deceased with his vast mercy and enter him into his vast gardens."

Ismaily added: "The Ismaily Board of Directors, headed by Engineer Yahya El-Komy, mourns the death of Adham El-Selhadar, a star and former coach of the team, who passed away as a result of a sudden heart attack, following his follow-up to the match of his team, "El-Majd" Alexandria, in the second division league competitions.

"Against this background, the Board of Directors declared 3 days of mourning for the soul of the late."

El Magd have since announced a six-day period of mourning and suspended their next match.

Rest in peace, Adham El-Selhadar.
