Hossam Hassan Replaces Henri Michel As Zamalek Coach

The former Egyptian International has been called upon to end a string of poor results for the White Knights.
Retired Egyptian international striker Hossam Hassan was appointed as Zamalek coach on Monday. The decision came a day after French manager Henri Michel was sacked after the side slumped to 2-0 loss against Police Union to leave them with a measly 11 points after 10 games played.

According to Filgoal.com, Hassan received a hero’s welcome on Tuesday during his first training session with the club that he represented for four years when he was still a player. Supporters are expecting him to inject some life into the team that has been struggling since the beginning of the season.

The 43 year old trainer told reporters that he recognizes the difficulty of the task ahead of him but also believes that Zamalek have what it takes to rediscover their winning ways to climb out of their 10th place in the Egyptian Premier League standings.

Hassan will face his first test on Thursday against Harras Al Hoodoud and then will have to brace himself for the Cairo derby clash against first placed Al-Ahly next week.
