Zamalek have sacked Serbian coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic following their defeat to Congolese side TP Mazembe in the CAF Champions League at the weekend.
Pressure has been mounting on Micho as Zamalek lost 2-1 to Enppi in the Egyptian Premier League last week, dropping to fifth place in the standings.
The White Knights then suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat to TP Mazembe five days later in their opening game of Group A in the CAF Champions League.
Despite a poor run of results, Micho had a bright start since taking charge of Zamalek in August, winning the Egypt Cup after a dominant 3-0 win over Pyramids FC.
After their Egypt Cup triumph, a 3-2 defeat to arch-rivals Al Ahly in the Egypt Super Cup followed two weeks later.
Micho has managed Zamalek for 12 games, winning seven games, losing four games, and drawing just one game. He was in charge for just 137 days.
To his defence, Sredojevic claimed in a statement that the team has been struggling because players haven’t been paid their salaries for the last four months.
