Zamalek strolled to an easy 3-0 victory over second-division side Haras El-Hodood in the Egypt Cup round of 16 at El-Salam stadium on Thursday.
Zamalek coach Jovovic Nebojsa was under pressure due to the unsatisfying recent performances and results.
Congolese striker Kabongo Kasongo opened the scoring for the White Knights after 17 minutes into the game while Syrian fullback Moayad Ajad converted a penalty five minutes before the break to double the lead.
Mohamed Ibrahim، who made his first start in ten months، completed the rout for the White Knights in the 75th minute، firing Zamalek to the competition's quarter-finals.
Zamalek is due to face the winner of Friday's clash between El-Intag El-Harby and Gouna in the quarters.
