CAIRO: Zamalek s assistant coach Mohamed Helmi has expressed concerns over the team s shaky defense following Monday s 3-2 defeat against Telecom Egypt.
The Whites conceded three goals on three terrible defensive mistakes that cost them the points of the game and the second spot.
These mistakes can cost us a lot in the Cup final. We must reconsider our backline performance during the next few days, Helmi told FilGoal.com.
Zamalek hope to end their four-year trophy-less run when they face ENPPI next Sunday.
We still have another game against Petrojet on Thursday and we could test our defense, added the former Baladeya coach.
Zamalek need to beat Petrojet and hope Ismaili will lose their game against Arab Contractors to claim back the second place and secure a Champions League spot next season.
