boss John Toshack expressed his views following his side’s goalless draw against in Egypt.

Wydad held Al Ahly to a draw in Cairo on Saturday in the third round of the group stages, which cemented the Moroccan club’s position at the top of the group, leaving the Cairo giants bottom with a maiden point after three matches.

Speaking after the match, the former legend said: “A draw against Al Ahly is satisfactory to us. We expected a very tough game and we should’ve scored.

“We played an excellent match against Al Ahly, the players did what they were asked to do but we missed our former striker Malick Evouna.

“Evouna could’ve made a difference for us. Look at his goals with us, his departure was a loss for and now we have players who couldn’t score. Even Chikatara, I don’t know if we’ll sign him or not,” Toshack concluded.

It is worth noting that Malick Evouna swapped Wydad for Al Ahly in a $2.5 million deal in the summer of 2015, before completing a record-breaking $8 million transfer to Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda just a few days ago.
