Agusti to Al-Ahly .. Controversy in Egypt because of the basketball coach
Al-Ahly’s approach to the inclusion of Spanish coach “Agusti Bosch”, the former basketball coach at Zamalek, has caused a lot of controversy in the Egyptian sports community.
Zamalek was suffering from a significant decline in level at the beginning of the 2020-2021 season, but the arrival of Agusti transformed the Al-Obaid Al-Asimi club into a terrifying club that managed to achieve the continental title and then win the Egyptian League title.
Zamalek tried to negotiate with Agosti, but the Spanish coach demanded to wait for the end of the contract at the end of the current season. After the end of the season, the coach informed Zamalek of his rejection of the idea of continuing.
Agusti assured Zamalek that he could not stay because of the transfer laws that prevent the league champion from contracting only one player with a huge fine if he wanted to include another player, while the club is on its way to neglecting the services of its two stars Anas Osama and Mohab Yasser, the duo who is expected to travel to play in USA.

According to several press reports, Al-Ahly succeeded in obtaining the signature of the Spanish coach for two seasons in a free transfer deal with a salary of 15,000 dollars per month.
Acquiring Agusti is a painful blow from Al-Ahly to the neighbor, especially after the great brilliance of the white team under the leadership of the Spanish coach last season.
The fans of Zamalek expressed their anger over the management’s failure to maintain Agusti, in addition to his transfer to the traditional rival Al-Ahly Club, while Al-Ahly fans confirmed their great happiness because of the contract with the coach in order to compete for titles next season.
It is noteworthy that Agustí previously worked as an assistant coach for the Spanish club Barcelona.
