Zamalek await Christian Gross’ final response over coaching job
Zamalek board member Ismail Youssef has said on Friday that the club is waiting for Swiss manager Christian Gross to issue his final response regarding the Whites’ job.
As KingFut had exclusively disclosed, Gross flew to Gouna, Hurghada on April 21 in order to hold talks with Zamalek for the coaching job, before Zamalek announced they found an agreement with the former Basel boss to take over starting next season.
“We are waiting to receive the final response from Gross within the next week. He has an agreement in principle to coach Zamalek and there isn’t any crisis,” Youssef told MBC Masr channel.
“Mortada Mansour [Zamalek president] spoke with Gross and there are no issues. He is welcoming the idea of coaching Zamalek and things are near conclusion.”
“Gross knows the value of Zamalek as a club and the decisive reply will be next week,” he concluded.
The former Zamalek player has also pointed out to the possibility of keeping hold of interim coach Khaled Galal as a part of Gross’ coaching staff.
It is worth noting that Zamalek came out victorious in the 116th Cairo derby after defeating Al Ahly 2-1.
