Another chance for Ahmed Mido in Zamalek

Another chance for Ahmed Mido in Zamalek


Ahmed Mido is back to coach Zamalek, replacing Marcos Paqueta who has been fired.

He will be assisted by former national teammate, Hazem Emam.

Mido and Emam were team mates and played for Egypt in the Africa nations club in 2004.

An opportunity for the recent TV analyst to rebuild the team with his own style.

With little time for him to showcase his worth, the new coach says he is set for the game against Dakhila.
Zamalek is one point behind Al Ahly and occupies position number five.

Ahmed wants fans of Zamalek to maintain their calm and judge his capability after the 12th day of play.
Mido stopped playing football in 2013 and started coaching Zamalek in 2014.

He was replaced in July 2014 due to poor performance.
Much is expected from him this time around.
