Zamalek coach Ahmed "Mido" Hossam has expressed his pleasure at beating Smouha 1-0 in the Egypt Cup final and winning the title Saturday.
The Cairo giants won their second successive Egypt Cup title when a last-gasp Hazem Emam strike handed them a hard-earned 1-0 win over 10-man Smouha.
"I am happy for winning the first trophy in my coaching career," Mido told reporters after the game.
"I congratulate my team's players for their performance throughout the season, as well as the Egypt Cup final game," he added.
"Zamalek players followed instructions and they deserve appreciation," the Zamalek coach said.
After winning the Egypt Cup, Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour revealed that the board will decide on Mido's fate Monday.
"My fate with the team is for Zamalek's management. All I can say is that I am satisfied with the Egypt Cup win," Mido concluded.
