Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour has branded Gor Maria a 'weak' team, this despite the Egyptian giants falling to a 4-2 defeat away to the Kenyan champions in Nairobi earlier this week.

The White Knights currently sit bottom of Caf Confederations Cup Group D following two surprise results, which started with heavy loss in Kenya.

Zamalek failed to bounce back from the defeat, drawing 1-1 at home to NA Hussein Dey in their most recent continental encounter.

"We got knocked out from Arab Championship against Ittihad, lost to a weak side in Kenya. This is difficult to understand," Mansour was quoted as saying by

"What [head coach Christian] Gross does is stubbornness and has no other explanation. I don't seek to clash with him for Zamalek fans, it's not just about the draw and it's not even related to football.

"But what happened against NA Hussein Dey is unacceptable, after we had the chance to become group leaders we are now in the bottom," he concluded.
