Juan Carlos Osorio, Zamalek coach, attributed his team's defeat from ENPPI to a number of factors, most notably his mistakes in managing the match.
Zamalek lost for the first time in the Egyptian league this season, after losing to ENPPI 2-1 at the Arab Contractors Stadium in the fifth round.
After the match, Osorio spoke at the press conference, saying: "I made a mistake in not playing with an honest striker from the beginning, and I made a mistake in not playing with two strikers after falling behind in the result in order to make amends."
"But we lost by a set piece and we are 7 players in the penalty area compared to 4 players from the opposition, this is something I will talk about with the players in training."
"We controlled the game a lot and had the ball, but in the end a set-piece was the reason we lost."
Zamalek's balance with this defeat froze at the eighth point in fourth place, while the Egyptian league is currently leading the Pyramids team with 13 points.
