Zamalek president Mortada Mansour says coach Micho Sredojevic will not be fired from his job at the Egyptian club.

Zamalek have had a bad spell in the last three games, leaving fans thinking the former Orlando Pirates mentor will get fired.

Mansour has developed a reputation for firing coaches after a few losses. However, the White Knights boss says Sredojevic has nothing to worry about as he is planning to keep the coach until the end of the season.

“Micho will not leave. He is staying until the end of the season and the same thing goes [for] his assistant coaches,” Mansour was quoted as saying by KingFut.

“However, new names could be added to the coaching staff.

“I have imposed heavy fines on a number of the players, but I don’t want to talk about them publicly.

“Micho is 100% better than René Weiler [Al Ahly’s manager]. Al Ahly didn’t play any difficult games until now, so he hasn’t been exposed yet,” he added.
