Former Uganda Cranes coach Micho Sredejovic’s career as the coach of Zamalek started on a high note after defeating Somalian outfit Dekedaha 6-0 in the return leg of the 2019/2020 Total CAF Champions League preliminary round.
Mostafa Muhammad and Mahmoud Abdel grabbed a brace each while Mahmoud Alaa and Mahmoud Abdel Aziz scored the other goals in a one-sided encounter.
Zamalek advanced 13-0 on aggregate after they won the first leg 7-0 and will face Génération Foot from Senegal who defeated Liberian side LPRC Oilers 3-1 on aggregate.
It was Micho’s first game in charge since resigning as the head coach at Orlando Pirates a week ago.
Orlando couldn’t go past the preliminary round stage after their one-all draw with Zambia’s Green Eagles, the latter advanced 2-1 on aggregate having won the first leg 1-0.
Micho’s predecessor who also resigned after Uganda’s last game of the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations Sebastien Desabre is having a good run at Pyramids in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Islam Issa’s 32nd strike gave Pyramids a 1-0 win over Étoile du Congo in Congo Brazzaville, the former advanced 5-1 on aggregate having won the first leg 4-1 back in Cairo and will face Malindi of Zanzibar in the first round qualifying round.
Desabre has been in charge of three games at Pyramids, the other was the 1-0 win over Al Ahly in the Egypt Cup round of 16, Ugandan international Abdul Lumala assisted Eric Traory’s strike in that one.
