"I will not renew his contract, I told him that he is no longer the head coach of the team, he will leave Egypt soon," Mansour said as per

"Khaled Galal will take the charge of the team for the remaining Egyptian league matches."

Zamalek beat RS Berkane 5-3 on penalties last weekend as they tasted CAFCC success for the very first time.
