Mansour comments on 'Micho' future

Zamalek president Mortada Mansour has responded to speculation that Milutin Sredojevic will be sacked after the surprise draw to newly promoted side Masr.
 
Pressure is beginning to rise on the shoulders of the former Orlando Pirates head coach in one of the hottest seats in African football despite an unbeaten start to the season.
 
In his current role as one of the highest paid coaches on the continent, the expectation from the White Knights each season is to challenge for all trophies on offer.
 
While the 0-0 draw against the minnows is the first points dropped after three rounds of fixtures, the performances and style of play in wins over Ittihad of Alexandria and Misr El Makasa has not left fans happy.
 
The decision to rest key figures Mahmoud Alaa and Ferjani Sassi, against Masr ahead of their clash against Al Ahly after the international break backfired for the Serbian - which has resulted in for calls for his exit on social media.

This comes after defeats to Generation Foot in the CAF Champions League and the Super Cup loss to Ahly last month - but Mansour insists Micho's job is safe at the moment, contrary to reports in Egyptian media.
 
"Micho will not leave. He is staying until the end of the season and the same thing goes to his assistant coaches,” Mansour said, as per KingFut. "However, new names could be added to the coaching staff.
 
"I have imposed heavy fines on a number of the players, but I don’t want to talk about them publicly.
 
"Micho is 100% better than René Weiler [Al Ahly's manager]. Al Ahly didn't play any difficult games until now, so he hasn’t been exposed yet."
