Zamalek sacked former Spurs player Mido after 37 days in charge

Former Tottenham striker Mido has been sacked by Zamalek after taking charge of just seven matches and  little more than a month after he took charge of the club for the second time.

The former West Ham player was fired on Tuesday after  Zamalek lost 2-0 to Al Ahli who are the league leader in the Cairo derby.

Mido, who played for clubs including Ajax, Marseille, Roma, and West Ham, was in charge for 37 days and was in dugout for just seven matches after replacing Brazilian Marcos Paqueta.
With the the victory, Al Ahli have now extended their lead on the table to seven points with Egyptian league season almost at halfway point.
He tweeted this on Wednesday, ‘I apologise to Zamalek fans for letting them down. I did my best in my work from the first minute but I wasn’t lucky.’
He won the first four before a draw with Smouha and losses to Ismailia and Ahli. He won the Egypt Cup in 2014 during his first six-month spell as manager.
Mohamed Salah will replace him, who becomes Zamalek’s fourth coach this season, following Portuguese Jesualdo Ferreira, Paqueta and Mido.
