Al Ahly board member and the team’s South Africa delegation head Kamel Zaher spoke about the Red Devils’ last match against and coach Hossam El-Badry future with the team.

The Cairo Giants qualified to the CAF Champions League group stage following a goalless draw with Bidvest Wits in the second leg of the round of 32. El-Badry led the team qualifying with a 1-0 aggregate victory over Bidvest Wits.

“South African side Bidvest Wits were not as good as we expected them to be during the match,” Zaher said in radio comments.

As for Hossam El-Badry, Zaher assured that the coach will continue leading the team normally contrary to news reports that suggested otherwise. He also assured that Al Ahly was not willing to let El-Badry go if the team was eliminated from the Champions League. “The board had no intention to remove El-Badry even if we were eliminated by Bidvest Wits,” he added.

The board member also spoke about the new players who did not get the chance yet to play with the team by saying that such a topic can only be discussed by the technical staff who have the final say.
