CAIRO-13 March 2021: Zamalek’s new manager Patrice Carteron stated that the team has a chance to reach the quarter-finals of the CAF Champions League.

Crateron said that he trusts the players’ abilities to overcome the difficult circumstances and secure qualification to the next round.

“We are in a tough situation in the CAF Champions League competition. We need to win the next three matches. We will face Esperance at home and then we will go to play in Algeria and everyone knows how it is difficult to play in Algeria.” Carteron said in his first interview with Zamalek’s official channel.

The White Knights are third in the group with only two points after three matches and they will face Esperance on Tuesday in the fourth fixture of the CAF Champions League group stage.

Zamalek announced on Thursday that they have parted ways with the Portuguese coach, Jaime Pacheco, thanking the manager for his efforts during his second spell with the club.

The White Knights also announced the appointment of the club's former French head coach Patrice Carteron to be Zamalek's new coach.

Carteron coached Zamalek between December 2019 and September 2020, having led the club to win the Egyptian Super Cup and the African Super Cup titles.

He also led Zamalek to the CAF Champions League semis before announcing his departure from the club before Zamalek's match against Raja Casablanca.
