stressed that is a strong opponent and that he does not believe the 1-0 first leg win is a “comfortable result”, adding that both teams were aware of each other before the match.

Al Ahly managed to secure a win in the 1st leg of the African Champions League round of 32 in Cairo in front of South African side Bidvest, with 1-0 result by a header from Ahmed Hegazy.

“Both teams knew each other well, Bidvest is a strong and special team. We could have scored a second goal but we failed, the percentage of qualifying is still high.”

He continued, “There is no comfortable result and the evidence for that is what happened with Barcelona and PSG. The most important thing for us is to win and will try to secure it in the 2nd leg match.”

He added that the way Bidvest will play in the 2nd match will be a benefit for Al Ahly, as they will try to win, which will make his plan and Bidvest’s coach plan will be completely different.

“Today’s result is not enough to qualify, we need to take care in the coming match — we threatened their goal many times today.”

He ended his conference by sending a message to Bidvest, “We threatened your goal today although you were defending, so imagine what we can do when you will play to win in the 2nd match.”

Al Ahly will play Bidvest in South Africa on March 19 in the 2nd leg for a place in the last 16 group stage.
