Pyramids FC have parted ways with manager Hossam Hassan just hours after the club’s 3-3 draw against Zamalek in the Egyptian Premier League.

"I will hold a meeting with Hossam El-Badri (the club's president), Ahmed Hassan (the club's spokesman) and number of players to prepare for the coming stage," Al-Sheikh wrote on his official Facebook page.

"We will choose a new technical staff," the club's chairman added.

The big-spending side played out a 3-3 draw with Zamalek in a postponed game from the ninth matchday of the Egyptian Premier League on Thursday.

"We will hire a big international coach who has managed teams and national teams as we have three choices that we will choose from," Al-Sheikh added.

Tactician Hossam Hassan, 52, took charge of Pyramids FC last October, succeeding Argentinean manager Ricardo La Volpe as the team’s coach.

They are currently second in the Egyptian Premier League with 39 points from 20 games, but should Al Ahly win four of their five postponed games, Pyramids will fall down to third place.
