Pacheco announces Zamalek squad to face Smouha
On Thursday evening, Pacheco announced the 19 players he called up for the match against Alexandrian powerhouse Smouha, taking place on Saturday, 25 October.
The newly-appointed Portuguese coach revealed he witnessed a number of technical mistakes in Zamalek’s 0-0 draw against Wadi Degla on Monday, and that he is working to solve the ‘exact problem’.
The squad list included Omar Gaber and Ahmed Tawfik amid speculations of both leaving the club, while Ahmed Dweidar and Saleh Moussa are absent due to injuries.
The Portuguese manager leaves out Abdoulaye Cisse from the squad for technical reasons after his very poor performances for the Whites since the start of the season.
The Zamalek squad is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Ahmed El-Shennawy and Mohamed Abou-Gabal.
Defenders: Ahmed Samir, Ali Gabr, Hamada Tolba, Hazem Emam and Mohamed Koffi
Midfielders: Ahmed Tawfik, Ayman Hefny, Ibrahim Salah, Momen Zakaria, Moruf Yusuf, Mostafa Fathi, Omar Gaber and Tarek Hamed.
Forwards: Ahmed Eid, Basem Morsi, Khaled Kamar and Youssef “Obama”.
