Ahmed Mortada blames Zamalek players for poor results
Zamalek board member Ahmed Mortada Mansour said that the team’s players should be blamed for the recent poor results in the league as the club fell to fourth place.
Mansour wanted to point out that managers and technical staff members are not the only reason why the White Knights have been suffering lately in the league. He insisted the current squad was not up to the board’s expectations.
“Players thought that when we change coaches this means that they are not to be blamed for bad results,” he told Sada El Balad TV channel. “They should be blamed first even before the technical staff.”
Zamalek are currently in fourth place with 40 points while arch rivals Al Ahly, who played one match more than Zamalek, are on top of the league with 55 points.
“This is what always happen to us after winning a title. I warned that such problems will emerge after winning the Super Cup, it is a Zamalek reality,” Mortada added. “That’s why the board will sit with the players and discuss the current problems. We want them to know that they will be accountable too.”
The Whites are currently in the progress of signing new head coach Augusto Inácio to lead the team for one and a half year. Inácio will be the third coach for Zamalek this season after Momen Soliman and recently sacked Mohamed Helmy.
