“This is positive sign that African football has come of age and it will encourage other clubs to do more,” Hayatou stated.
Such an achievement had Al Ahly’s marketing team thinking about modifying the club’s badge.
Ali Abd El Moneim, Al Ahly’s marketing manager said: “We will send the board a suggestion to alter Al Ahly’s crest after reaching 19 titles.”
