Al Ahly manager expressed his dissatisfaction with the referee and oppositions after the Red Devils’ drew with in Egypt.

Tunisian side Esperance managed to escape with one point from Borg Al-Arab Stadium after coming out with a 0-0 draw against Al Ahly in the first round of the groups stage.

El-Badry expressed his anger after the match saying that the refereeing was unfair to his team.

“The media should play a role in dealing with referee mistakes, we’ve been chosen the same referee as our previous encounter [with Esperance] and he made the same mistakes,” he revealed.

He was also displeased with Esperance saying that they depended on three tactics which are long balls, physical encounters and wasting time which wasn’t attended by the referee.

“Esperance were very physical with us throughout the game and they wasted 27 whole minutes.”

Badry concluded by praising Ahly players by saying that the result was unfair as they were the better team but the injuries and absentees were factors in the draw.

“I don’t blame my players and I thank them for their efforts and playing a good game. We had controlled the game except for the mistakes, time wasting and Esperance’s physicality,” he concluded.

Youssef Wael is a massive Al Ahly and Manchester United supporter from Cairo, Egypt. One of the few Egyptians who never really wanted to have a career in football, just played it as a hobby. Wael also played squash for 7 years.
