Zamalek have now appointed Scottish manager Alex McLeish as their fourth coach this season

Scottish boss Alex McLeish has been officially unveiled as the new Zamalek manager, the Cairo giants announced on their Facebook page on Friday.

After agreeing on a year-and-a-half contract with the Whites, McLeish has now been formally appointed as the team's fourth manager this season.

The ex-Rangers boss, who along with his assistants would cost the club an annual fee of $810,000, should now take charge of Zamalek's upcoming league game against El-Entag El-Harby on Wednesday.

Zamalek, who sacked Brazilian manager Marcos Paqueta before showing Mido the door following a 2-0 defeat to arch-rivals Ahly, are now second in the league table – three points behind their arch-rivals.
