Portuguese coach Augusto Inacio ‘signs one-year Zamalek deal’

Portuguese coach Augusto Inacio officially signed a one-and-a-half-year contract with Zamalek at the club’s headquarters on Friday, the Whites’ management announced.

“With the attendance of Zamalek president Mortada Mansour and board member Ahmed Mortada, Portuguese coach Augusto Inacio officially signed contracts to lead the first football team in the club,” read a statement on the club’s official website.

Inacio is set to be officially unveiled as Zamalek’s new coach at a press conference on Saturday, the Cairo giants announced.

The 62-year-old will take charge of Zamalek in the League, Egypt Cup and CAF Champions League tournaments following the resignation of Mohamed Helmi, under whom the club delivered a recent series of unconvincing performances.

A former Portugal left-back, Inacio previously worked in Portugal as a coach for various clubs, including Rio Ave, Marítimo, Sporting CP and Moreirense.

Zamalek lie fourth in the Egyptian Premier League table with 40 points, a massive 18 behind leaders Ahly who have played one match more.
