OFFICIAL: Mohamed Helmy resigns as Zamalek manager
Zamalek’s board have accepted Mohamed Helmy’s resignation following their loss against Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Champions League.
Mohamed Helmy, who was appointed after Alex McLeish’s departure, has parted ways with the Egyptian Premier League giants after a series of disappointing results.
The former Al Masry and ENPPI manager took charge of 15 matches in all competitions, with an overall record of 10 wins, three draws and two losses, leading the Whites to finish second in the league as well as reaching the semi-finals of the Egyptian Cup.
Mohamed Salah will be in charge of the team until a new manager is appointed, with Mortada Mansour confirming that the new manager will be an Argentine or a Belgian.
“Zamalek will appoint a foreign manager,” The club’s chairman Mortada Mansour told Sada El-Balad Channel.
“There are two managers to choose from, the first is the Argentine manager Enzo Trossero and the second one is the Belgian Georges Leekens.”
The White Castle will be looking for the sixth manager this season after Jesualdo Ferreira, who departed for Qatari club Al Sadd SC, Marcos Paquetá, Ahmed Hossam “Mido”, Alex McLeish and Mohamed Helmy.
