Coach profile

 

Every group has a driving force, a strength that would gather the team in unison towards one goal and for the Al-Ahly’s Volleyball team, Mr. Ibrahim Fakhr Eldin is definitely the one. 

Ibrahim Fakhr Eldin is the head Coach of the Al-Ahly Sporting Club’s professional volleyball team since July 2009.

As a backgrounder, Mr. Ibrahim is 57 years old and was born in Cairo, Egypt. He was a graduate of  Physical Education and Sports College in 1978, He attended local training courses for basic and advance level of volleyball coaching and training. He also attended international courses for volleyball coaching, training and techniques. 

Mr. Ibrahim started his volleyball career when he was 17 years old playing for the Al-Ahly’s youth team until his retirement as a player in 1981 when he got injured.

The injury gave opportunity to Mr. Ibrahim to a career switch and it was when he started his coaching in 1982. He became the head coach of the Al-Ahly’s first team.

The best part of his coaching career started when he handled the national volleyball team of Egypt to World Cup in 1999. In 2000, his team won the African championship league which qualified them to the Sydney Olympic Games2000. 

During the duration of his coaching career with Al-Ahly’s club, Mr. Ibrahim delivered 21 Championships as follows:

a.     Egypt League  (7) -      

b.     Egypt Cup  (4)

c.      African Championship (9)

d.     Arab Championship (1)

To mold a team to become a champion is not an easy task but neither a challenge to be afraid of. A risk is a risk but a calculated risk results to a higher percentage of success.  Coach Ibrahim definitely took a lot of risk in training a team not to mention the selection of the right players. Training a team is his specialization, winning a game is his expertise.
