El-Badry delighted with Saleh Gomaa after double against Smouha
Al Ahly manager Hossam El-Badry has praised Saleh Gomaa after his brilliant performance against Smouha in the 31st round of the Egyptian Premier League.
The 23-year-old guided the league champions to a 4-2 victory over Smouha and his manager El-Badry was delighted with his performance on Friday.
“Any player in the squad deserves to play for Al Ahly, but we evaluate the players throughout the season and Saleh is competing with Abdallah El-Said for his position,” El-Badry told OnSport.
“Saleh was brilliant and fit. He has lost so much weight. He got our message, we don’t want anything from him except to see him mentally and physically fit.
“Now, he has the desire to appear the way we want him to. He is young and has great qualities,” he added.
When he was asked about the reason behind leaving Amr Barakat and Hamoudi out of the squad he replied: “Excluding any player from the squad, doesn’t mean he isn’t part of my plans.”
“We need the win against Wydad to qualify to the quarter-finals. We need to play the game with this mentality and to focus on getting the win,” he concluded.
The Reds will face the Wydad Athletic on Tuesday, June 20. Al Ahly currently top the group with seven point, ahead of Zanaco on goal difference, while Wydad Athletic sit third with three points, and Cotton Sport languish at the bottom of the group with zero points.
