Zamalek coach Nebojsa Jovovic has quashed recent rumors that he intends to leave his post, adding that he takes full responsibility for the club s poor results this season.
"I don t think of leaving my job at all. These are just rumors," the 43-year old coach was quoted as saying by the club s official website on Monday.
Jovovic s future at Zamalek became uncertain recently after the team s shaky start to the season left them fourth in the league s table with 19 points from 11 games.
Sunday s resignation of Medhat Abdel-Hady and Hussein El-Sayed from Zamalek s coaching staff came to further aggravate the matter.
"I took charge of Zamalek to succeed and achieve titles and I am sticking with my dream of writing my own history with the club," added Jovovic, who is also the former coach of Kuwait s Kazma and Jordan s Al-Faisaly.
On Saturday, Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour announced new faces in the coaching staff as former player Nabil Mahmoud will be the new assistant coach while Ayman Hafez, who has a strong character, will be the football director.
Jovovic signed a two-year contract with Zamalek On 28 August, but he wasn t lucky enough to get a perfect start as the team won in five matches only, drawing four times and losing the two reaming matches.
The Whites were dealt a heavy 3-1 loss to rivals Maqassa before holding to a 1-1 draw against Rajaa in the last two league matches.
"I am the one who takes full responsibility of the team s results as I realize well that the coach is always responsible of everything," the coach explained.
"I won t find justifications for our faults. I am looking forward to make up for the bad results," he concluded.
Ahead of Nebojsa s appointment, Zamalek have had 15 coaches since the election of current President Mansour in 2014, including Mido, Hossam Hassan, Portuguese Jesualdo Ferreira and Scotsman Alex McLeish.
