The Red Devils maintained their perfect start to the campaign with a 1-0 win against Petrojet in the third round of games in the Egyptian Premier League and after the game Ahly’s new manager Jose Peseiro spoke to the press about his side and their performance.

Peseiro began by justifying starting Antwi in his starting line up saying, “I thought of playing Abdel-Zaher instead of Antwi because the latter was tired, but I resorted to him because we needed the biggest offensive presence.”

The Portuguese manager went on to deny any rumours of problems in the dressing room saying, ”We are dealing with the players and game time according to the games and tasks ahead of us and nobody in this squad expressed any displeasure. We are one team working towards the same goal.”

Peseiro was also asked about the team’s formation and more specifically the number of strikers he intends to use in his formations. He said, ”Right now we are playing with one striker, but it is possible that we will change that in the future and play with more than one forward.”

The 55-year-old also commented on his team performance saying, “I would like to congratulate the players on this win, but I would also like to mention that I want us to evolve in the upcoming period and with the upcoming games.”

Finally Jose refused to comment on individual performances of his players adding, “I dont want to comment on individual performances of any player because this is not the place to do it. The right place to do it is in training where we can work on our errors, but in general I am satisfied with my players performances.”
