Zamalek bleed more points against ENPPI | VIDEO
Zamalek’s new coach Augusto Inacio was dealt the worst possible start in his debut with the Cairo giants after losing 2-0 to rivals Enppi in the Egyptian Premier League on Monday.
The two goals by striking duo Mahmoud Kaoud and Mohamed Hamdi Zaki on minutes 31 and 69 gave Enppi three precious points; adding more woes for Zamalek, who were dealt their fourth successive league loss.
Replacing coach Mohamed Helmi, who resigned after a series of unconvincing performances, the Portuguese coach Inacio hoped for a better start, but the stiff petroleum side prevented him from leading the Cairo giants back to winning ways.
The loss left Zamalek fourth in the Egyptian Premier League table with 40 points, a massive 18 behind leaders Ahly, who have played one match more.
Enppi moved forward to 11th place with 28 points.
