Football manager dies from heart attack while celebrating a crucial goal

Egyptian football boss Adham El-Selhadar has reportedly passed on in heartbreaking conditions in the wake of watching his side score a 92nd-minute champ.

The 53-year-old suffered a heart attack in the prompt fallout of his side’s goal against El Zarqa in an Egyptian Second League match on Thursday.

While the goal initially started joyous celebrations, the mood immediately soured after El-Selhadar was raced to hospital having experienced a heart attack during the resulting scenes following the goals.

Affirmation of his passing has prompted a wave of touching tributes from some of the greatest names in Egyptian football, with pair of top level clubs Al Ahly SC and Ismaily SC – the latter of whom El-Selhadar managed – since publishing heartfelt posts.

Al Ahly’s statement read: “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.

Ismaily SC echoed their rivals sentiments, their statement reading: “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.”
