The decision to re-sign Carteron caused much controversy between Zamalek fans and they are divided between supporters and opponents of the decision.
The White Knights also announced the appointment of the club's former French head coach Patrice Carteron to be Zamalek's new coach.
Carteron will succeed Jaime Pacheco, who was appointed Zamalek's head coach last October to succeed Carteron himself.
Pacheco said that Zamalek players have the ambition to defeat Esperance and take a step towards securing a spot in the competition’s quarter-finals.
Zamalek had a frustrating start to the group stage as they were held to a goalless draw by MC Alger at home in Matchday 1.
Zamalek came close from scoring during the match but all the White Knights’ attempts missed the target.
The White Knights beat the Moroccan champions thanks to a goal from Zamalek’s Moroccan winger Achraf Bencharki.
