Vieira agrees terms with Zamalek over return

Posted on January 16, 2015

Jorvan Vieira

who led Iraq to winning the 2007 Asian Cup has agreed terms to return to after his past brief stint at the club during the 2012/2013 season.

The Brazilian was recently sacked from his position as Kuwait national team manager following a heavy 5-0 defeat in the Gulf Cup.

Jorvan coached 19 different teams during his 35-year career, two of which were Egyptian, Zamalek and Ismaily.

Zamalek have been looking for a manager since Pacheco’s surprising departure after the ENPPI 2-0 defeat. The Portuguese tactician said that disrespect from Zamalek is what forced him to leave.

The former Al Qadisiya coach has previously – before getting sacked – dismissed any rumours linking him to Zamalek as he said in a TV interview: “Someone contacted me saying Mortada Mansour wants me to return to Zamalek, I refused because I have a contract and negotiating with another team is dishonorable.”

Jorvan Vieira had a successful trial with the Cairo-based club for a year, adding a positive effect on the team’s morale and attitude, but couldn’t guide the team to win any silverware before leaving after disagreements with the board.

Vieira has already requested a training camp under closed doors before the 29th of January’s clash with Cairo giants Al Ahly.

Zamalek currently lead the league with 40 points from 17 games.
