Competition returns to Egyptian Premier League as Zamalek near crown

Zamalek are on pace to secure their first Egyptian Premier League trophy since 2004.

In the four years since the Egyptian Revolution, every facet of that country -- from politics to personal lives -- has been torn apart, and that includes football. For the first time in its history, the Egyptian Premier League was not completed in 2011-12, leaving the country without one of its greatest constants. History repeated itself in 2012-13.

Perhaps comfortingly, when the league resumed in the 2013-14 season, it was as though nothing had changed. Record title-holders Al-Ahly continued...

Stephen Keshi exits as Nigeria manager after a tumultuous reign

Stephen Keshi's tumultuous time as Nigeria manager appears, finally, to be over.

Stephen Keshi's on-today-off-tomorrow relationship with the Nigeria Football Federation has finally been severed. 

A meeting of the NFF executive committee, which ended around 10 p.m. Saturday, resolved to terminate Keshi's contract after it concluded that an application was sent on his behalf to the Ivory Coast football federation seeking to replace Herve Renard. 

The report, a copy of which was viewed by ESPN FC, contained Keshi's CV and cover letter, both of which were obtained from...

Ivory Coast coaching candidates take centre stage in Africa

Former Rennes boss Frederic Antonetti is one of the finalists for the Ivory Coast post.
Former Rennes boss Frederic Antonetti is one of the finalists for the Ivory Coast post.

With most domestic leagues still enjoying their off-season, the focus remains on coach and player movements across the African continent. This week, the current champions, Ivory Coast, narrowed their search for a new manager, while there were some big moves being mulled by players from South Africa and Ghana. And there is some on-field action, as a country that has not hosted an international in more than a year has been given permission to stage a match. Here's the news round-up:

Who will coach...

Nigeria seemingly on unending search for a permanent home

The Akwa Ibom Stadium in Uyo is the only stadium in Nigeria that has natural grass and is up to international standard.

Kaduna, Uyo, Calabar, Benin, Abuja, Abeokuta and Port Harcourt. What do these Nigerian cities have in common? They have all played host to the Super Eagles at different times over the past decade.

It is not by choice. Between cash troubles and a gaping inadequacy in natural grass playing surfaces, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) usually finds itself caught between a rock and a hard place.

In days of yore, Lagos used to be the undisputed home of the senior national team. And a formidable home...

Neil Tovey must shape South African football amid questions over his role

Neil Tovey celebrates South Africa's African Nations Cup victory with Nelson Mandela in 1996.

The South African Football Association has finally called on one of their most successful faces as they look to emulate and ultimately go beyond the success of their 1996 African Nations Cup victory.

Neil Tovey, who captained the team to their only continental triumph, has been appointed technical director of the federation for the next five years but his influence may not be felt at the highest level, where it may be most needed.

Tovey's new job will focus more on grassroots with his main task...

The uneasy marriage of Stephen Keshi and the Nigeria Football Federation

A once cordial relationship between the Nigeria Football Federation and Nigeria manager Stephen Keshi is quickly eroding.

Despite protestations to the contrary, last weekend's events have very clearly illustrated that the seemingly calm relationship between Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi and his employers at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) was just the prelude to a storm.

Things bubbled over on Friday when the NFF found Keshi's name on a shortlist published by the Ivory Coast FA. According to the Ivorians, the listed coaches had "indicated their intentions" to replace manager Herve Renard, who left last month...
