Patrice Carteron resigns as Zamalek head coach

- Yasmine El Tohamy - Zamalek’s French head coach Patrice Carteron has surprisingly resigned after less than a year in charge of the Whites.

In shocking news to many of the Whites’ fans, French manager Carteron has decided to call an end to his time in Cairo, resigning from his role as Zamalek manager.

The decision to resign is rumoured to make way for Carteron to take over the vacant head coach position at rivals Pyramids FC or Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca, who parted company with Juan Carlos Garrido just days ago.

Carteron was appointed as Zamalek head coach last December, taking charge of the club in 31 games, winning 19 while losing only three.

He led the club to the Egyptian Super Cup title as well as the CAF Super Cup, before guiding the Whites to the CAF Champions League semi-finals.

Domestically, Zamalek sit second in the Egyptian Premier League, 20 points behind leaders Al Ahly and are in the quarter-finals of the Egypt Cup, where they will face Smouha.

The club’s performances under his guidance, earned Carteron a new improved contract last June, however, the Frenchman decided to quit and will just pay the release clause, which was included in the contract.
