Books – Omar Qora:
Zamalek failed again in the African Confederation after he made a 1-1 tie with home side Nasr Husayn Dae in the second round of the group stage, although they had a head start in the last minute, but the visitors managed to grab a point.
Al-White was in the standings of the Confederation team, with only one point left after losing their opening game against Kenya's Gormahia 4-2.
Opinions were divided about the reason for the draw: some blamed the players for not having won after more than one goal was wasted, while others criticized coach Christian Gross, the coach.

Zamalek's former president has criticized Grosse for beating the stars in the league last August, as well as the team's results in the Arab League in October and demanded justice after ignoring many players.
Despite the fact that more than one encounter between Zamalek boss and coach during the passage of the team during the period of bad results especially at the beginning of the season, but Gros ignores the observations of the board of the excluded and escapes successive victories in the competition.
Gros relies on basic strength without making any changes by pushing Ibrahim Hassan, Joseph Obama and Mahmoud Karka behind Kabongo Kasongo or Omar Al-Saeed in the front line before accepting the new Moroccan expat Khaled Boutaib.

Zamalek has many front line players, with Ibrahim Hassan, Mustapha Fathi, Ahmed Zizou in the right wing, Mahmoud Kherba, Mohamed Antar, Hamid Ahad, Ahmed Medboli on the left, Joseph Obama, Mohamed Ibrahim and Ayman Hafni in the playmaker.
Ahmed Medbouli is the only player who has not touched the ball in the era of Gross, while Joseph Obama this season has the most participation with 20 games, followed by Mahmoud Alaa with 19 games and Mahmoud Kahra and Ibrahim Hassan (18 games).
