Patrice Carteron Resigns
Egyptian Premier League side Zamalek Sporting Club have announced that head coach Patrice Carteron has resigned after less than a year in charge of the Whites.
In shocking news to many of the Whites’ fans, the Frenchman has decided to call an end to his time in Cairo, resigning from his role as Zamalek manager.
The decision to resign is rumoured to make way for Carteron to take over the vacant head coach position at rivals Pyramids FC or Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca, who parted company with Juan Carlos Garrido just days ago.
However, sportsfold.com understands that the Frenchman is heading to Saudi side Al-Taawoun, who are currently taking part in the AFC Champions League. Carteron was appointed as Zamalek head coach last December, taking charge of the club in 31 games, winning 19 while losing only three. He led the club to the Egyptian Super Cup title as well as the CAF Super Cup, before guiding the Whites to the CAF Champions League semi-finals.
Domestically, Zamalek currently sit second in the league, 20 points behind leaders Al Ahly and are in the quarter-finals of the Egypt Cup, where they will face Smouha. As at the time of this report Zamalek is yet to appoint his replacement.
