Zamalek’s new head coach Milutin Sredojević “Micho” has decided on Monday to lead the Whites against Dekedaha in the second leg of the CAF Champions League.
The Serbian coach signed a one-year contract with the White Knights on Sunday. Micho will hold a meeting with Zamalek’s official to settle on his technical staff. Zamalek will play against Dekedaha on Friday, August 23 in the preliminary stage of the CAF Champions.
The Whites’ president Mortada Mansour said that Micho was their third choice after the Portuguese manager Jesualdo Ferreira and the Argentine coach Ramón Ángel Díaz.
Micho terminated his contract with Orlando Pirates F.C, before landing in Egypt to lead the Confederation Cup champions.
The Club’s president sacked coach Khaled Galal following the Whites’ defeat in the Cairo derby and appointed on Friday, August 2 Tarek Yehia as a temporary head coach for just a week.
In May, Zamalek won the Confederation Cup for the first time in their history after securing their victory in a dramatic penalty shootout over RS Berkane at Burj Al Arab Stadium (5-3). The Whites failed to claim the Egyptian Premier League this season as they finished second with 72 points.
It is worth mentioning that the White Knights made an ideal start to their adventure in the preliminary stage of the CAF Champions League by hammering Dekedaha on Sunday with unanswered seven goals at Burj Al-Arab stadium.
