Mido withdraws decision to resign from Zamalek post
Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’ has withdrawn his decision to resign as Zamalek manager after stating early on Saturday morning that he will be leaving his post.
Mido took to Twitter on Saturday with what was a message of thanks to Zamalek fans, after announcing he would be resigning as the Whites’ manager, saying: “Good Morning, I will be resigning today from managing the team [Zamalek]. Thanks to the fans for backing me, and I thank the board for backing and standing by me.”
صباح الخير..اليوم ساتقدم باستقالتي من تدريب الفريق.اشكر جمهور الزمالك على دعمهم لي..واشكر مجلس الادارة على المسانده والدعم..
— Mido (@midoahm) May 3, 2014
A few hours after his tweet, Mido withdrawn his decision to leave the club where he started his playing career, pleading for everyone to judge him and the team starting from next season.
“The current crop of players at the club do not have experience in handling the critical matches,” Mido said to reporters.
“I do not want people to judge me on the current season,” said Mido who took over as team manager after the league had already started.
“I want people to judge me on the season that I’m there from the start with the team,” Mido concluded.
It is worth noting that Mido has come under criticism after Zamalek’s loss against Petrojet and Ismaily – both vital games to determine the clubs who will go on to the semi-finals, while he stated in both matches that there were fans for the opposition teams in the stands and that the match points should be awarded to the Whites.
A similar incident occurred in Zamalek’s match against Haras El-Hodood, where the Whites were stripped a point after some of the supporting fans broke into the stands with fireworks to support the team.
Mido was also involved in a tussle with one of the Ismaily staff where some inappropriate language was reportedly used while Zamalek president Mortada Mansour came out to defend his manager later after the game.
