OFFICIAL: Zamalek accept Soliman’s resignation, appoint Mohamed Salah
Soliman submitted his resignation after the outspoken chairman criticised the team’s poor display and Soliman’s tactical choices following Zamalek’s 1-0 win over 10-man Tanta in the league on Friday.
Zamalek have four wins out of five Egyptian Premier League games and sit sixth in the league standings on 13 points with four games in hand.
Following Soliman’s resignation, the club announced appointing Salah as the team’s manager. The former Zamalek player had previous managerial stints at the White Castle as he was appointed as a caretaker upon the departure of Jaime Pacheco and as an assistant coach for former Zamalek manager Ahmed Hossam Mido.
The 42-year-old coach helped Zamalek win the Egypt Cup after beating arch-rivals Al Ahly in the final and guided the team to the CAF Champions League final before losing 3-1 on aggregate to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Soliman becomes the sixth manager to leave Zamalek in the last year, after Jesualdo Ferreira, Marcus Paquetá, Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’, Alex McLeish and Mohamed Helmy.
