CAIRO: Ahly-bound coach Herve Renard indicated that the Egyptian champions have the ball in their court as he hopes to take the team’s hot seat.
The Frenchman has been admittedly linked with the job as Ahly are looking for an overseas manager to succeed interim boss Abdul-Aziz Abdul-Shafi ‘Zizo’.
"Talks are ongoing and we are currently in a decisive stage," Renard told FilGoal.com.
"Ahly have to decide who they want for the job.
"I would be grateful to work in Egypt and be in charge of a great team like Ahly."
Renard was in charge of Zambia when they upset Egypt in a 1-1 World Cup qualifying draw last year, which turned out to be crucial for the Pharaohs’ campaign.
The Frenchman is believed to be one of three managers to be shortlisted by the Ahly board in the meantime.
