Zamalek midfielder Ahmed Hassan said that manager Hassan Shehata has no intention to resign after the Cairo derby next Sunday.
Hassan is known to be close to Shehata since the latter's days in charge of Egypt as he denied reports claiming that the 'Master' intends to leave his position after being booed by Zamalek fans following the defeat to Ghana's Chelsea .
"Shehata is detested because he doesn't feel he gets enough support with Zamalek," Hassan told Modern TV.
"But he never said he will leave following Ahli game."
Shehata has kept Hassan as captain during all the three African Cup of Nations that Egypt won in 2006, 2008 and 2010.
He also welcomed the signing of Hassan once he took over Zamalek last summer.
Zamalek will play Ahli in their second outing of the group in Cairo behind closed doors.
Ahli are second in the group after beating Mazembe of DR Congo 2-1.
