Carteron: Al Ahly on par with Barcelona and Real Madrid
Al Ahly newly appointed manager Patrice Carteron has set his new team as one of the biggest clubs in the world, stating that his objective is to keep the club on the winning track.
French manager Patrice Carteron has been appointed as new coach of Al Ahly on a two-year deal, the club announced on Tuesday.
KingFut previously revealed that the Frenchman has put pen-to-paper on a contract with Al Ahly to take over at the Red Castle.
“I am very to sign with Al Ahly which is the African football’s giant. I am still young but I possess great experience I earned through my spells with TP Mazembe and Wadi Degla,” Carteron told Al Ahly official website.
“Negotiations were finalised rapidly. I will fight in order to lead Al Ahly to win titles and make the fans happy. I committed to my word with the Red Devils and terminated my deal with Phoenix Rising by mutual consent. I had other offers from Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs but the priority was definitely for Al Ahly.”
“I am certain that Al Ahly is not any less than Barcelona and Real Madrid. I will do my best to succeed, lift trophies and to always be on the podium. I know everything about Egyptian football and I follow Al Ahly. My primary goal is to retrieve the team’s fighting spirit which has regressed recently.”
The Red Devils have collected only one point from their first two group stage games in CAF Champions League round of 16. The team will initiate the new season with their encounter against Township Rollers in the African competition on July 17, which will be Carteron’s first game at the helm of the team’s technical staff.
“I would like to stress that I am proud to be a part of Al Ahly family. I will fight to win as many titles as possible and get the players to give their best in each game.”
