Avram Grant speaks ahead of Egypt clash
Egypt is set to host the Black Stars on November 13 at Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria in the second round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
“It’s better to play in a stadium full of fans than an empty one,” Grant said in the pre-match press conference.
“I was surprised when I watched Al Ahly play against Ghanaian teams in an empty staduim.
“Borg El-Arab’s pitch is amazing, it’s better than the pitch in Ghana.
Avram Grant then talked about the security in Egypt and the importance of the win against Egypt on Sunday, saying that a win against Egypt will revive their qualification hopes.
“I work as football manager for a long time. Football is connecting people and I am really happy to work in this field,” He added.
“I managed a lot of teams which have different nationalities and that doesn’t matter at all.
“The team’s security has been at the highest level and that’s normal. I trust the Egyptian’s culture.
“We want to win to revive qualification hopes, a win for Egypt would put them in a good position,” Grant concluded.
