Zamalek sack Helmy Toulan, Mido to take over?
Zamalek’s board of directors have decided to sack Helmy Toulan after the team drew with Haras El-Hodood, with the team showing some frustrating performances in the league.
Toulan took over at Zamalek last summer and won the cup title, but failed to replicate the club’s form since the league started as they won just two matches out of four games played.
The board of directors had a meeting Monday night and most of them agreed on sacking Toulan except the club’s president Kamal Darwish – but they finally managed to convince him, according to reports.
On the other hand former Zamalek striker Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’ is a leading candidate for the job while some reports also claim that current Jordan manager Hossam Hassan, who previously managed the club, is also running for the job.
Mido who retired last summer at the age of 30 after long career in football declined a managerial offer from Al Masry two days ago, making the rumors of him signing a contract with Zamalek much stronger.
The board of directors are set to announce their final decision tomorrow after their meeting, with a ‘thank you’ toast set to be done for Helmy Toulan.
Regarding their league form under Toulan, the club beat Al Masry in their first game of the season then lost their second game against Ismaily. They managed to win the third game against Tala’a El-Gaish and finally, in their fourth game they drew against Haras El-Hodood with yet another disappointing performance.
Zamalek currently sit 7 points behind group leaders Ismaily with the league set to resume after the 25th of January due to orders from the Ministry of Interior, amidst wide anticipation of riots taking place in the memory of the 2011 Egyptian revolution.
