Zamalek coaching stuff, manager Hossam Hassan and his twin Ibrahim, football director, will extend their stay at the White Castle.

Zamalek president, Galal Ibrahim will hold a meeting on Wednesday to discuss the future of the coaching staff to reach an agreement with them to remain.

“We will stay at Zamalek for another two seasons,” Ibrahim Hassan was quoted as saying on Ahram Gate, “but we will have the right to leave if you approved another offer.”

The 44-year-old coaches of the Cairo-based club, who are leading them to compete for the first Egyptian Premier League title since 2004, asserted that they are engaged with the club and the benefits negotiations will not cause any problem.

“Staying in Zamalek is more important than the finances,” Hassan confirmed.

The big African side faces a financial crisis following the ousting of its former president Mamduh Abbas who provided a main source of the club’s funding.

Zamalek got back to the winning days since the twin came and they are leading the league table with 49 points, level with arch-rivals and title holders Ahly.
