15 managers at Zamalek before Micho

Zamalek SC president Mortada Mansour made Milutin Sredojević the 16th manager within his five year tenure, can 'Micho' break the narrative?

While Mansour's controversial statements and trigger-happy ways of hiring and firing head coaches are well known across Africa - the record before him makes for equally compelling reading.

The White Knights have not held a manager for a full season since the 2002/2003 season, while Mansour was elected in 2014, which suggests the five-time CAF Champions League winners' only constant over the past two decades, is change.

Christian Gross, who was the highest paid manager in Africa during his time at the helm and steered thm to the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup title, held the longest stint with 363 days - overseeing a total of 48 games across all competitions.

Despite the instability and lack of job security of managers at the club, a total of 11 major titles have still been won under Mansour's erratic leadership before Micho was officially unveiled on Monday afternoon.

The Serbian tactician who resigned from his role as Orlando Pirates manager on Friday evening has signed a one-year deal with the 12-time league champions - in which he described as his 'dream job'.

How wise this bold move was for the 49-year-old? Only time will tell, in the meantime, scroll through the gallery above to see the 16 managers, which excludes the eight caretakers over the last five years at the Cairo based outfit.
