OFFICIAL: Zamalek sack manager Ehab Galal

OFFICIAL: Zamalek sack manager Ehab Galal
Zamalek have officially sacked manager following their 2-1 defeat to Ittihad of Alexandria on Thursday.

Galal had resigned from his post last week after his side’s loss to Misr El-Makkasa, and president Mortada Mansour declared that Galal’s resignation has been accepted.

OPINION | Why has Zamalek’s season gone from bad to worse?

However, he decided to continue with the Whites following a meeting with the club officials on Monday, and three days later the club sacked him after a shocking loss to Ittihad of Alexandria.

Galal has struggled since his appointment, leading the club in 17 games across all competitions, winning eight, drawing two, and losing seven.

The Whites lost to each of Al Ahly, Al Masry, Ismaily, Misr El-Makkasa, Ittihad of Alexandria, and Welayta Dicha twice. They also dropped points against Entag El-Harby and ENPPI.


Galal had agreed a one-and-a-year-half deal with the White Castle after paying the release clause in his ENPPI contract. Before his stint at ENPPI, the Egyptian coach had an extraordinary season with Misr El-Makkasa as they finished second in the league qualifying for the 2018 CAF Champions League.

Zamalek were knocked out of the CAF Confederation Cup during Galal’s reign, falling to Ethiopian minnows Welayta Dicha in the first round.

The Whites also need a miracle to finish second in the Premier League as they currently sit six points behind second-placed Ismaily.

They also may lose the third place to Al Masry, as the Port Said-based club sit fourth, two points behind Zamalek, but Al Masry have three games in hand.
