    that’s good if we win, good for us, but the game played is alarming compared to the big teams of our continent. We depend a lot of Salah, systematically playing on him. I am convinced that Hector Cuper is not the man for the job, because tactically it’s really weak.

      I think maybe our main problem is the midfield during the defensive phase.Not enough agressivity for me.
