When asked about names that will be excluded from Zamalek’s squad for next season he mentioned the names of Eslam Gamal, Stanley Ohawuchi, Emmanuel Mayuka, Mostafa Fathi and Ahmed Gafaar. “In addition to, Ali Fathi who has been injured since the start of the season, a left back, a midfielder and three attacking midfielders,” he added.

As for Bassem Morsi and Hossam Paolo, Mansour confirmed that both players will be staying with the team next season.
