Egyptian Premier League side Pyramids FC have sacked their manager Ante Cacic with immediate effect following their loss in the CAF Confederation Cup final to RS Berkane.
Cacic took the helm of Pyramids on 27 December 2019. He led them to a third place finish in the Egyptian Premier League.
On the continental front Cacic managed Pyramids extremely well as they advanced through the group stage and knockout rounds with relative ease.
In the final against RS Berkane, however, they were outclassed.

Pyramids were bought two years ago by Saudi billionaire Turki Al Sheikh, who had lofty expectations for the club. After a disappointing run of form last season he sold the club to Emirati owners, who have managed the club much with much more stability.
Cacic, 67, managed the Croatian National Team from 2015 to 2017, before being sacked ahead of the World Cup. It is worth noting that Cacic was expected to leave regardless as he only signed a short-term contract with the Egyptian side.
