The Swiss coach led the Egyptian giants to a penalty shootout win over Morocco’s RS Berkane in the Confederation Cup final at the Borg El-Arab Stadium on Sunday. 

Despite the important win, it has been confirmed from Zamalek’s top brass that Gross’s contract will not be renewed.

News reaching the Siya crew is that Eymael, who is coaching Tala’ea El Gaish in Egypt, has been earmarked for the Zamalek role. 

“Luc Eymael is in touch with Zamalek following the departure of Christian Gross from the club. Eymael’s CV is with the club and he is one of the three candidates considered for the position,” a source told the Siya crew.

Well done, despite we could have got 8 points more. Choukran (thank you) everybody (Edited and translated),” wrote Eymael on his official Twitter account.
