“I want to thank the players for achieving the title. We did what we had to do during the game,” Gabr said.
“Winning the title after beating a big team as Al Ahly will give us an enormous boost to achieve victories in the coming period in all competitions,” he added.
Gabr thanked the fans from both sides who attended the game in Abu Dhabi saying he hopes fans would return back to the stands in Egypt.
