Zamalek right winger, Ahmed Samir has announced that he will stay at the White Castle after learning of the departure of the coaching staff twin.

The Cairo-based club has announced late Tuesday that former Egypt coach Hassan Shehata will succeed Hossam Hassan as football manager.

“I wanted to leave because of the twin’s oppression,” Samir said adding, “They didn’t allow me to prove my worth through enough participation.”

Samir sustained an injury during the Haras El-Hodoud match and has been missing from the White squad for months.

Football director, Ibrahim Hassan and his twin, Hossam, have been criticized heavily by local media due to their aggressive attitudes on the field.

The two former Ahly and Zamalek players led the Whites to the top of the Egyptian Premier League table this season for weeks, leading Ahly by six points before finishing the title race second, seven behind archrivals.

Hassan Shehata’s appointment may urge some players to change their tone as many stars who were in the national team under the guidance of Shehata, like Amr Zaki, Ahmed 'Mido' Hossam, Mahmoud 'Shikabala' Abdel-Razik and Ahmed Abdel-Shafy, have revealed their interests in exiting due to managerial issues and earlier financial problems.
