“I am happy to be here, first of all when we talk about Zamalek there is a great passion where we remember the full stadiums and the fans who push the players and this is what I want to see again,” the Portuguese said.

“I salute the efforts made and promise the fans to make them happy and also the board of directors and we will produce a good team by integrating the old and new players,” he added.
