Helmy: We hope luck is on our side against Al Ahly
Zamalek manager Mohamed Helmy has revealed that his side only need luck to defeat Al Ahly in the Egyptian Super Cup on Friday.
The White Knights will look for revenge against arch rivals Al Ahly, who beat them 2-0 in the league, when they travel to Abu Dhabi to face them on February 10 in the Egyptian Super Cup.
“Zamalek is waiting to win the Super Cup for a long while now, and we hope luck is on our side against Al Ahly as it the only thing we need against them,” Mohamed Helmy said.
“The national team players are influential for us. We gave them a rest on Tuesday and will see their physical condition on Wednesday, but all they need now is rest and sleep.
“Shikabala is a really important player for us, but it was hard for him to join the squad after missing the trainings for a month due to injury and illness. He remains a really important player and his return should be in a suitable way.
“Hossam Paulo is a prolific and strong player, who scores from every half chance, and will be useful for us. He quickly adapted with the team which is a good news ahead of Al Ahly game,” he concluded.
