After Zamalek's humiliating 1/6 defeat to their biggest local & continental rival AHLY in the 2nd leg of 2001/2002 Egyptian league and the loss of their league title, most people thought that it would take the team years to bounce back from the worst defeat in the club's history.

To the surprise of all, this defeat heralded an all-win streak in their first 5 competitions which they won all: Egyptian Cup 2002, Egyptian Super Cup 2002, African Champions League 2002 (for an all time African record of 5 titles), the African Super Cup 2003 (for an all time African record of 3 titles), & finally they captured the Egyptian league title 2002/2003 at the last day from rivals AHLY who topped the league table all through. During that period, no other Egyptian club captured any title.

Along the victory-studded Zamalek history, Zamalek fans were never more proud. The last league title is considered the dearest of all 57 Zamalek titles.
