Egyptian football club Zamalek announced on Saturday that French coach Patrice Carteron will remain in his post with the team for another season.
“We wish our coach good luck in winning more titles,” the club said in a short statement without disclosing further details.
Carteron took charge of the Whites last December after the departure of Serbian coach Micho following a series of poor results, and he was due to leave after the end of this season.
In May, the Cairo giants announced that they had reached an agreement with the 49-year-old tactician despite the ongoing suspension of all football activities in the country due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A former coach at Ahly and Raja Casablanca of Morocco, Carteron helped Zamalek snatch the African Super Cup and Egyptian Super Cup titles and reach the African Champions League semi-finals.
Ahead of the current league suspension, Zamalek were in fourth place on the table with 28 points from 16 matches, 21 points behind leaders Ahly, who played one match more.
