Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour has expressed confidence in his new coach Nebojsa Juvevic and says they will be crowned as league and cup champions by the end of this season.
The White Knights had a disappointing start to the season as they lost two and drew four from 11 games in the Egyptian Premier League.

However, they currently sit in fourth place on the league table with 19 points and Mansour is upbeat they can lift a trophy or two this season.
“We have put our trust in Nebojsa and his new managerial staff, and I know very well that he will guide the team to glory and that is why we’ll be backing him up in the coming games,” Mansour said in a televised interview.
“Zamalek will be crowned as both league and cup champions during the current season. I’m certain of what I am saying and you’ll see at the end of the season.”
