CAIRO – 25 February 2019: Zamalek President, Mortada Mansour, revealed on Monday that the club manager, Christian Gross, will continue with the club till the end of his contract.

Reports linked Gross with leaving the club after the team’s recent poor results at the domestic League and CAF Confederation Cup.

The team lost two points at the League title race after their 2-2 draw against El Gaish on Wednesday and their game against Angola’s Petro Atletico on Sunday at CAF Confederation Cup ended with a 1-1 draw.

“We learned from the past and I will never sack the manager till the end of his contract.” Mansour told press on Monday.

Zamalek suffered on Sunday night against the Angolan team and they were losing the game 1-0 until Youssef Obama secured the draw for Zamalek minutes before the final whistle.

The draw kept Zamalek chances to reach the second round alive but the team needs to gain as many points as they can at the remaining games.

Gor Mahia leads the group with 6 points, two points ahead of Algeria’s NA Hussein Dey and Petro Atletico who share the second place while Zamalek sit at the bottom of the group with two points from two draws at home and a 4-2 loss in Lenya to Gor Mahia.
