Zamalek coach Jesualdo Ferreira is confident ahead of Thursday's Egypt Super Cup match against rivals Ahly in the UAE.

"The team is familiar with the taste of victory now it will be hard to put us off," Ferreira said in the pre-match press conference on Tuesday in the UAE's city Al-Ain.

Under Ferreira the club ended a decade-long jinx by winning their first Egyptian Premier League since 2004, compounding their win by taking the Egypt Cup from Ahly as well.

"Nothing will affect the team performance in the game. We are fully focused and we will not change our enthusiasm," he concluded.

Zamalek's only failure last season was in the African Confederation Cup where they lost 5-4 on aggregate to Tunisia's Etoile du Sahel in the semi-final, but they were lauded for a spirited second-leg performance.
