“Martin Jol is a huge name in the world of football, and Al Ahly is always on the front foot before anyone else.” he added.

“Jol surely knows the club’s stature, and the expectations of the fans. We will not accepting anything other than winning trophies.”

Taher also mentioned that he believes that Jol will enhance the quality of Egyptian football as a whole and not only at Al Ahly.

“All what you’re hearing about Jol’s wages is simply not true. Al Ahly are going to pay Jol’s salary, but if anyone’s willing to pitch in and help the club, then they’re welcome,” he concluded.

Martin Jol will watch his new side from the stands today as they face Petrojet. He will officially take over from tomorrow.
