The technical staff of the Zamalek team, led by the French coach Patrice Carteron, decided to implement a gradual qualification program, as it will start with some light physical exercises and be gradually increased to reach the highest qualification rate before facing Aswan, which is scheduled for June 17th.
The first football team in Zamalek club will return to group training at six in the evening tomorrow, Saturday, as part of the team’s preparations to face Aswan, which is scheduled for June 17 in the league.
The team received a negative rest for 5 days after a negative draw with El-Gouna in the 25th round of the league, especially since the Zamalek team played 3 matches in 10 days in 3 different governorates, which exposed the players to fatigue.
On the other hand, Zamalek officials put 3 players in the midfield position under observation during the coming period in preparation for negotiating with them and contracting one of them to join the ranks of Zamalek starting next season, in anticipation of the departure of the Tunisian international Ferjani Sassi, whose contract with Zamalek expires at the end of the current season, and the file has not been resolved Renewed so far.
Sources said that the three players, one of whom plays in the Turkish league and is a foreign player, while Zamalek sets its sights on two players inside the Egyptian League, and Zamalek officials keep the names of the trio secret for fear of financial auctions and the entry of competitors in the deals..
Zamalek officials fear the failure of the renewal of Sassi, which puts the administration under pressure in front of the fans, with the need to provide a strong alternative so that the team is not affected by the possible departure of Ferjani Sassi.
In a different context, the French coach, Patrice Carteron, the coach of the Zamalek team, decided the fate of the duo, Mustafa Fathi, who loaned him to Smouha, and Razak Cisse, who was loaned to Al Ittihad of Alexandria, after he asked the club’s management to return and not to compromise both duo, whether through sale or loan..
Carteron assured his assistants that the technical level offered by the duo in the second round of the league confirms that they will be an addition to the team next season, especially since Zamalek needs support in the offensive part..
While Carteron asked to give him an opportunity to study the file of the rest of the loanees, in light of the fact that none of them appeared at a remarkable level, such as Razak Cisse or Mustafa Fathi.
