"The new coach will arrive in Cairo next Sunday after the match against Dekedaha. We unanimously agreed on the assistant staff," Mansour said.
The Zamalek chairman decided not to reveal the new coach's name, he said, because he didn't want competing clubs to establish contact with the new coach lest they try to talk him out of the Zamalek deal.
The Whites ended second in the last season of the Egyptian Premier League, and won the African Football's Confederation Cup. Mansour sacked the club's Swiss coach Christian Gross, nevertheless, blaming him for losing the league title.
After sacking Gross, Zamalek hired Khaled Galal to lead the team in the remaining matches in the local league, but he too was sacked after losing to Ahly in the league's last match.
The White Knights chairman assigned Zamalek's former coach and player Tarek Yehia to be the new caretaker until the club signed with the new foreign coach.
Yehia will lead Zamalek in their first game in the 64th round of the CAF Champions League against Dekedaha.
