Garrido: We always play to win each game
The Spanish coach noted that the result came due to the winning mentality that the Reds’ players possess, as they came back from being 1-0 down in Alexandria to score three goals in the second half to make it 3-1.
“The players winning mentality saved the victory for us against Smouha.,” he said.
He also admitted that Ahly players were nervous during the game, but they managed to overcome that.
“We were nervous during the game as we always play to win each game in the Egyptian Premier League.”
He then went on to praise the players’ second half fighting performance, adding: “I am happy that we took three points off Smouha who are tough opponents.”
