Zamalek board of directors, headed by president Mortada Mansour, have decided to sack coach Alex McLeish’s Scottish assistant Frank Nuttall, along with Moussa El-Habashi

Nuttall has joined Zamalek’s coaching staff last month after a request from McLeish, coming from a coaching experience with Kenya’s Gor Mahia.

This decision has increased the speculation about Mansour’s attempt to force McLeish out of the club by depriving him from his men in Zamalek’s coaching staff.

The Whites have replaced the departing duo with former club legends Gamal Abdel-Hamid and Mohamed Helmy who were appointed as director of football and first team trainer respectively. In the same context, the 63-year-old president has also brought back Ismail Youssef to the coaching staff after he was sacked earlier this month.

McLeish agreed to become Zamalek coach in February and took over the first team in nine games between the Egyptian Premier League and CAF Champions League, recording five victories, two draws and two defeats so far.
