Former Egypt national team coach Hassan Sheta has claimed that he was approached by the Ghana football Association to manage the senior national team.

But Ghana has since handed the coaching job to Kwesi Appiah who began on 1st May on a two year deal.

In an interview with Egyptian website kingfut.com, Shehata admitted that he was approached by both Ghana and Nigeria but talks broke down.

The 69-year-old has parted ways with Petrojet after losing 1-0 to Nasr Lel Taa’deen at home, but he revealed that he is not thinking about retirement.

“I don’t think about retirement. I have received offers from the Nigerian and Ghanaian national teams, but the negotiations have broken down,” Shehata said.

“I want to take a break until the end of the season after leaving Petrojet. I have several offers from African and Arab national teams, but I will not reveal them now,” he added.

Shehata led Egypt to three consecutive African Cup of Nation between 2006 and 2010, but since then has failed to lift a trophy despite managing giants like Zamalek, Qatari side Al-Arabi, and Morocco’s Difaâ Hassani El-Jadidi.
