Maroof Yusuf targets more silverware with Zamalek

30 September 2015, 10:11

Cairo - Zamalek midfielder Maroof Yusuf has expressed optimism that The White Knight can defend the Premier League and Cup titles they won at the end of last season.

However, his team's hope of winning a treble has literally gone up in smoke after losing 5-1 to North African rivals Etoile du Sahel in the first leg of the semi - finals of the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday, a game Yusuf wishes to erase from his mind.

Zamalek will pick up their first silverware ahead of the resumption of the league should they defeat Al Ashly in the Super Cup on October 16.

''I can't say much about why we lost the first leg, let's wait for the return leg,'' said Maroof Yusuf to news24.

''We are still targeting many trophies this coming season by God's grace, you know Zamalek and Al Ahly is never an easy match but with determination we can win.

''All the players were focused and determined and that's why we won the League and Cup last season.''

Asked about his personal targets for the upcoming season, Maroof Yusuf said: ''I am still targeting many trophies and I pray to score as many goals as possible by God's grace.''

Zamalek snapped up Yusuf on a three - year deal in summer 2014, amid interest for his signature from bitter rivals Al Ahly.
