Martin Jol: I won’t resign, we still stand a chance in CAFCL

Martin Jol


manager has stated that he is not leaving his post as The Red Devils head coach after his team’s draw against Group A leaders Wydad Casablanca in CAF Champions League on Saturday.

Al Ahly fell short against the Moroccan side failing to beat them in Borg El-Arab stadium and settling for a 0-0 draw to make their chances of passing to the African competition’s semifinals very slim.

Al Ahly managed to earn only one point from three games, losing their first game against Zesco United in Zambia and obtaining two home draws against ASEC Mimosas and Wydad Casablanca respectively, to become on the verge of getting knocked out from the competition where The Red Devils hold its record as the most decorated club with eight titles

“I am the league champion, Al Ahly also compete in Egypt Cup and we still stand a chance in the Champions League,” Jol said in the post-match press conference.

“It is normal to lose a game and now our job is to work in order to fix things up. Then actually I think Al Ahly have controlled the game and it was a one-side match, did Wydad reach our goal except in one occassion?”

“Meteb can play in the last 30 minutes only, the player’s physical condition made me delay his inclusion on the pitch. Furthermore, I predicted that Amr Gamal would ask to be changed at any moment and that’s why I preferred to keep Meteb,” Jol added.
