Official: Zamalek confirm return of Hossam Hassan as manager
Hossam Hassan has officially returned to Zamalek, taking the role of the club’s new manager replacing Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’, who was dismissed from his post on Tuesday following the Whites’ 0-0 draw against TP Mazembe in their last CAF Champions League match.
A deal had already been agreed in principle with club chairman Mortada Mansour earlier this week, and the Cairo giants have now officially confirmed his appointment on Twitter.
Mido took charge of Zamalek on the 21st of January, becoming the youngest manager in the club’s history following the sacking of Helmy Toulan, the current manager of Tala’a-Gaish.
The former Tottenham striker managed to win one trophy with the team, retaining the Egyptian Cup, while qualifying for final round of the Egyptian Premier League – albeit failing to secure a spot in next season’s Champions League.
Hossam Hassan managed Zamalek for two seasons from 2009-2011, finishing second place in the Egyptian Premier League and qualifying to final of the Egyptian Cup before losing to ENPPI.
The legendary Egyptian striker will be accompanied by his brother Ibrahim after the duo left their post with the Jordanian national team.
