“Our target is to beat Al Ahly and win the championship,” said Hassan in a press conference, in which the club’s new signings were introduced.

“My first game is against a very strong opponent but the team have aspiration to beat Al Ahly, qualify for the final and win the Cup,” he added.

Hassan who was unveiled last month as a player-manager for Petrojet said that he won’t be playing against the Red Devils.

“I want to focus on my role as a manager during our match against Al Ahly. The playing issue will come later,” Hassan explained.

“I am working on building a strong team and creating coherence among the players especially with the club’s new signings,” the former Ahly and Zamalek midfielder added.

Petrojet introduced 14 new signings during the press conference, including former Zamalek striker Ahmed Gaafar and former Ismaily defender Moatasem Salem.
