Former Al Ahly manager Manuel José has expressed his support for the club’s new coach during his visit to .

The legendary manager has visited Egypt to shoot a few episodes of Sahebat El-Sa’ada TV show, and was keen to visit Al Ahly’s headquarters where he met with fellow Portuguese José Peseiro.

José, who described Peseiro as “an old friend”, asserted that his compatriot will do a good job with Al Ahly.

“Peseiro is a good coach. Qualified. He’s definitely suitable for the mission. He is a professional manager and Al Ahly’s future will be very good under his leadership,” the Reds former coach said.

José, who was keen on visiting the Red Castle during his short trip to Egypt, said that he considers Al Ahly as his “home”.

“To support Al Ahly. Nothing more. I’m at home,” José said, explaining the reason behind his visit to the Red Castle.

Before the appointment of Peseiro, Jose was one of the potential candidates for the head coach position. Al Ahly board, however, rejected the return of the legendary coach for a fourth spell.
