Zamalek coach Hassan Shehata has asked his team management to bring foreign referee crew to officiate the Egypt Cup final game against ENPPI on 11 October.

Sources to Al-Ahram Sports gate reported that the 64-year old tactician is not confident of the Egyptian referees due to the poor performance of the referee in the the game against Haras El-Hodoud in Egypt Cup semis last Saturday.

Zamalek booked their place in the final of Egypt Cup after beating Haras El-Hodoud 2-1 while ENPPI reached the same round by defeating Arab Contractors 9-8 after tie-breaking penalty kicks.
