Thank you for reading the news about Zamalek reach agreement with Pacheco, announcement imminent and now with the details
Dubai - Yasmine El Tohamy - Cairo giants Zamalek SC have reached an agreement with Portuguese manager Jaime Pacheco for a second coaching spell at the club to finally bring the new coach dilemma to an end, with announcement set to take place tonight
Zamalek have been linked with several potential candidates to take over as the first team coach in the past few days.
The Whites were searching for a head coach to replace Patrice Carteron, who resigned last week to take over Al Taawon in Saudi Arabia.
The Frenchman had guided Zamalek to the Egyptian Super Cup title as well as the CAF Super Cup in the same week back in February.
He also led Zamalek to the CAF Champions League semi-finals, which is set to take place in October, after overcoming Esperance Sportive de Tunis 3-2 on aggregate.
KingFut had revealed earlier on Wednesday that Zamalek’s shortlist for the coaching job has been narrowed down to Jaime Pacheco, Gabriel Calderon and Hugo Broos as the three final candidates.
After evaluating their options, Zamalek have opted to bring back Pacheco who was at the helm of the team in October 2014.
However, the 62-year-old’s stint at Zamalek only lasted for two months after he fled the club and went to join Saudi outfit Al Shabab.
Successively, Pacheco headed towards China through Tianjin Teda in 2016 spending one year at the club before getting sacked in May 2017. Since then, he has been without a job.
In his first spell, Pacheco coached Zamalek in 12 games, winning nine, losing one and drawing in another two games.
Zamalek are currently second in the Egyptian Premier League table with 58 points after 29 games played. They have a Champions League semifinal in sight against Raja Club Athletic, which is set to take place in October.
