CAIRO, 14 August 2019:On Wednesday morning, Mortada Mansour, president of Zamalek Club, will hold a press conference at the club’s headquarters in Mit Oqba.
It’s expected that Mortada will announce the candidates for the coach position who will lead the White team in the next period.
Argentinean coach Ramon Diaz, the former coachof Pyramids FC, and Portuguese coach, Jesualdo Ferreira, the former coach of Zamalek, are now out of the race for candidates to coach the Zamalek team in the coming period.
Zamalek negotiations with both managers stopped due to different reasons. Ramon Diaz refused to rule the white club after not reaching to an agreement due to financial terms. While, Ferreira preferred to continue his rest from coaching as he led the Qatari club, Al Sadd, for three years.
Zamalek club president Mortada Mansour said he is inviting all the old football stars of the White Club to be present with the club’s board in a meeting next Wednesday to choose the new foreign manager.
Zamalek appointed their former player, Tarek Yehia, as a caretaker manager and they are searching for a new manager to lead the team at the new season after the board sacked Khaled Galal following the Egyptian league title loss to Al-Ahly.
Galal, who succeeded Swiss manager, Cristian Gross, led the team during the last stage of the season in which the team lost the title to their arch rivals, Al-Ahly.
