Zamalek captain Mahmoud Abdelrazek Hassan Fadlala is confident that they will win the 2019/20 CAF Champions League title.
The White Knights are scheduled to face their Egyptian rivals Al Ahly in the final at the Cairo International Stadium on Friday.
Fadlala, who is a left-footed attacking midfielder, was part of the Zamalek team which won the title in 2002 and it remains the club’s last Champions League trophy.
Better known as Shikabala, Fadlala thanked Zamalek’s club president Mortada Mansour for supporting the team ahead of the highly anticipated encounter.
“We thank you for being with us to support the team despite some health conditions,” Shikabala told the club’s official website.
“Your support for us in this period makes a difference with the team’s players in general and we are optimistic before every important match with your support for us.”
Having grown through the youth ranks of Zamalek, Shikabala has served the White Knights for many years and he is considered to be one of the legends of the club.
“God willing, we will repeat that session on Friday after winning the African Champions League,” he added.
Shikabala, 34, has won 15 major trophies with Zamalek including two CAF Super Cups and Champions League title.
