Zamalek Part Ways With Coach Patrice Carteron After Loss

Egyptian Premier League giants Zamalek SC  have parted ways with coach Patrice Carteron, the club has confirmed.

The decision comes two days after his team was lost 3-1 to Wydad Casablanca in a CAF Champions League Group D match on Saturday.

“We have agreed with Carteron to terminate his contract with team amicably and he will be paid only one month as a compensation without any filing of complaints with FIFA,” the club’s president Mortada Mansour said in video posted on his social media accounts on Monday.

Carteron had returned to Zamalek in March 2021 replacing Portuguese coach Jaime Pacheco, who was dismissed after a series of poor results.

During his second stint, Zamalek coach Carteron was tasked to rebuild the club and his influence made the team to their first Egyptian Premier League title since the 2015 season.

The Frenchman remains one of the respected coaches in Africa having also coached continental football giants Raja Casablanca and TP Mazembe.

Carteron steered Mali to third place at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa‚ beating Bafana Bafana in the semi-finals.

DR Congo national team coach Hector Cuper, who is gearing up for a World Cup qualifying playoff against Morocco, is mooted as one possible replacement for Carteron.
