Ehab Galal has resigned as Zamalek SC coach four months into his one and a half year contract with the Egyptian giants.

The 50-year-old former, who took over the White Castles in January this year, threw in the towel following a 1-0 loss to his former side Misr El-Makkasa in the Egyptian Premier League Sunday.

“I have handed in my resignation. I will not continue with Zamalek. It’s over,” he said after the bitter loss.

Galal succeeded Nebojsa Jovovic who was sacked following a poor run of form.

He became the 23rd coach of Zamalek since the reign of president Mortada Monsour begun in 2014.

Galal’s tenure has been turbulent and in 16 matches he was in charge he recorded eight wins, two draws and six loses.

Under his watch the five times African Champions were kbnocked out this year’s CAF Confederation Cup by little known Ethiopian side Wolliata Dicha.

In the EPL, he lost big matches against arch rivals Al Alhy, Al Masry, Ismaily SC, ENPPI, EL-Makkasa and Entag-Harby.

Zamelek are currently third in the EPL standings six points behind second placed Ismaily and are at a risk of missing continental football next year.
