Zamalek's new coach Khaled Galal has said that the Whites have the strongest team in the league this season, and could pull off a historic achievement.

"Zamalek have the best squad in the Egyptian league this season. We are competing for three titles and we have already won two," Galal told Mehwar TV channel on Saturday.

"We can achieve a historic season for the club if we managed to win the league title this season,"

Despite former coach Christian Gross’s achievement in guiding the team to win the Confederation Cup title, Zamalek parted ways with Swiss coach on Friday after dropping two key points in the league title race against El-Entag El-Harby.

Under the guidance of Gross, Zamalek also won the Saudi-Egyptian Super Cup last October.

With Galal now at the helm, the team is competing for the league, Egypt Cup and African Super Cup titles. The first test for the new coach will be against Harras El-Hodoud in the domestic league on Monday.

Galal led the Whites from April to June of 2018, when the team won the Egyptian Cup trophy.


Zamalek are now third in the league table with 67 points, seven points behind leaders Ahly, who have played two matches more.
