The 50-year-old took over the helm of affairs of the club in January after he replaced Nebojsa Jovovic who was sacked by the club.

Galal has struggled since his appointment, leading the club in 16 games across all competitions, winning eight, drawing two, and losing six.

The Whites lost to each of Al Ahly, Al Masry, Ismaily, Misr El-Makkasa, and Welayta Dicha twice. They also dropped points against Entag El-Harby and ENPPI.

The Zamalek gaffer in a statement said, “I have handed in my resignation. I will not continue with Zamalek. It’s over”.

He had agreed a one-and-a-year-half deal with the White Castle after paying the release clause in his ENPPI contract. Before his stint at ENPPI, the Egyptian coach had an extraordinary season with Misr El-Makkasa as they finished second in the league qualifying for the 2018 CAF Champions League.

Zamalek were sent packing from th CAf Confederation Cup in the first round by Ethiopian minnows Welayta Dicha.

The club now need a miracle to finish second in the Premier League as they currently sit six points behind second-placed Ismaily and could also lose the third place to Al Masry, as the Port Said-based club who are fourth and five points behind Zamalek but have three outstanding games.
