The coach of Zamalek Football club, Momen Soliman has said he will resign from his position if his team doesn’t defeat Mamelodi Sundowns over two-legs in the 2016 CAF Champions League final.
The White Knights who have arrived in South Africa for the final billed for Saturday hasn’t won the trophy for 14 years.
Soliman said in a televised that: “If we lose, I’ll resign by a phone call and I will not go to the club for the training sessions so that I don’t embarrass anyone if this happens.”
“We can’t get anything wrong in the coming period; in training, sleeping, or nutrition. Everything should be done at a high level even though there have only been eight players in training sessions during the past period,” Soliman continued.
“Sundowns is a big, strong team just like Zamalek, and winning the title is possible for either team. I hope that Zamalek fans will tolerate me if we don’t succeed in winning the title as I would have done everything I could,” Soliman concluded.
Soliman took over as the coach of Zamalek on an interim basis in July after Mohamed Helmy was sacked. Helmy is now the coach of the Egyptian National team.
