After his abrupt departure from Alianza Lima due to poor results, Mario Salas found a new opportunity in the Egyptian league and took over the technical direction of Wadi Degla a week ago, a cast that is fighting not to be relegated.
Today he had his long-awaited debut, where his team had control of the actions, but it was not how he expected, as he fell for the minimum account against Gazhl El Mahalla with an early goal from Abdel Kader Yehia.
For the statistics, the fact remains that their directors developed part of the idea of the former Colo Colo coach: 62% ball possession, 14 shots, of which four were between the tubes and 11 corners.
Unfortunately, this superiority in development did not translate into goals and Wadi Degla reached nine games without knowing of victories, thus remaining in last place in the standings.
The next commitment of Mario Salas’ team will be next February 20 as a visitor against Misr Elmaqasah, a cast that is in tenth place in the table. The Commander hopes to add his first triumph and begin to breathe a sigh of relief with the ghost of descent that looms.
For now, the leadership of his club blindly trusts the national coach and this setback does not set off the alarms.
