LIVE: Zamalek v Tanta | Friendly Match | July 28th, 2020
Zamalek will face Tanta FC in a friendly match today July 28th, 2020 in preparation for the return of the Egyptian league and the CAF Champions League.
The Egyptian Football Association (EFA) revealed on Wednesday the league’s fixture list for August, around two weeks before the domestic competition restarts after a five-month suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.
After repeatedly stating that it will not play the remaining matches of the Egyptian Premier League, Zamalek announced late on Monday that it will resume playing despite still being against the decision to resume the league.
In a general assembly meeting held at the club, the team’s French coach Patrice Carteron revealed his final decision to play in the domestic league, but stressed that he is against the resumption. The club’s president also asked the general assembly for their decision, which was also to resume playing.
“I didn’t want to resume the league matches like many other coaches, because of the large number of matches, which may prevent us from finishing the current season,” said Carteron.
