African giants Zamalek SC has appointed Patrice Carteron as the replacement of Serbian Milutin 'Micho' Sredejovic who was sacked on Monday.
Micho’s sacking came following their 3-0 defeat by TP Mazembe in the CAF Champions League on Saturday despite public support of many of his players on social media.
Micho told the BBC about his sacking: "(The) overall situation here is not favourable, so I parted ways with mutual, amicable agreement.”
The former Uganda Cranes led Zamalek to the Egypt Cup last September but lost the country's Super Cup against huge Cairo rivals, and league champions, Al Ahly. Zamalek, who are the holders of the Confederation Cup, hired Micho last August after he left his job at South Africa's Orlando Pirates.
The heavy loss to Mazembe, one of Carteron's former teams, was the catalyst for his departure, but there has been unrest within the camp in recent days, with Tunisia international Hamdi Nagguez leaving - saying that he is owed three months’ salary.
Zamalek's website announced that Carteron has been appointed to replace the Serb, but no details have been released about his contract.
