After Wednesday’s meeting, Zamalek's board members agreed to extend the stay of the first football team’s coach Hossam Hassan and his twin Ibrahim, the team's football director, for another season.
The Cairo-based club's management, headed by Galal Ibrahim, reached an agreement with the duo to extend their deal for one season with the same priveleges of their previous contract.
Galal Ibrahim also delegated the White’s management member Abdullah George to negotiate with the team star Mahmoud Abdel-Razek “Shikabala” to extend his stay with club.
Shikabala will be out of contract next January so the Zamalek management are eager to extend his stay with them before the beginning of the last six months of his contract, in which players are allowed to negotiate with any club in a free transfer.
The 44-year-old twin leaders of Cairo giants Zamalek have confirmed many times that they are engaged with the club and the benefits negotiations will not cause any problem.
“We will stay at Zamalek for another two seasons,” Ibrahim Hassan was quoted as saying on Ahram Gate, adding “Staying in Zamalek is more important than the finances.”
The Hassan twins and brilliant attacker Shikabala helped Zamalek to recapture the team’s winning days, as the Whites are now in the driving seat of Egypt Premier League for the first time since 2004.
