French coach Patrice Carteron, the coach of the Zamalek team, has persistently maintained Mohamed Awad, the team’s goalkeeper, in the starting line-up for the Smouha match scheduled for tomorrow, Thursday, in the 20th round of the League matches.
Awad participated in the last Pyramids match in the league, in which Zamalek drew with a goal for each team, and appeared at a good level in light of his lack of participation in the matches for more than a year due to the lack of conviction of the former Portuguese coach Pacheco of Zamalek of his level.
Carteron refused to return Jensh to the starting line-up for the match after he recovered from the injury he suffered, which is a lower back pain, and the French coach adhered to the presence of Mohamed Awad, a key guard for Zamalek in the upcoming Smouha confrontation.
In the same context, Mahmoud Jensh is undergoing an intensive rehabilitation program during training today and tomorrow, in order to bring his fitness level to the required level in light of his technical and physical decline, which was evident in the last matches in which he participated, the last of which was the Arab Contractors, which ended with a draw of Zamalek 2/2.
On the other hand, Farouk Jaafar, head of the technical committee for the football sectors of the Zamalek club, held a session with members of the Egyptian technical staff in the first team, Osama Nabih, the general coach and Ahmed Abdel Maksoud, the coach, to define the terms of reference and clarify the role of each one. Farouk Jaafar seeks to develop a complete map regarding the technical staff of the football team, clarifying all the specializations for all individuals in coordination with the French Patrice Carteron, the technical director of Zamalek, in order to prevent any future disputes in this file.
The training of the first football team at Zamalek Club, recently at the Abdul Latif Abu Rujaila stadium, witnessed an improvement in the relationship between Carteron and Osama Nabih, after the recent events that erupted between the two, and Carteron appeared during the leadership training more than once next to Osama Nabih.
