Maradona: Al Ahly played superbly against Roma
Football legend and icon Maradona watched the match from main stands of the Hazza Bin Zayed stadium.
“Al Ahly played well against AS Roma; also, the fans were outstanding and they deserve to be praised,” Maradona said in a televised interview.
He added that Al Ahly made several mistakes and wasted a lot of crucial chances in the match, which kept them from racking up a bigger scoreline against the Italians.
The two-time World Cup winner was impressed with Momen Zakaria second goal, as well Mohamed Salah’s overall performance.
“The match was very open; this was the secret of its success,” he concluded.
