Township Rollers manager: We don’t know anything about Al Ahly
Township Rollers manager Nikola Kavazovic has revealed he doesn’t know anything about Cairo giants Al Ahly ahead of their encounter on Tuesday.
Al Ahly are currently bottom of their group with one point following a home draw with Espérance and an away loss to Kampala City, while Township Rollers sit second with three points.
The Red Devils will host the Botswanan side on Tuesday at Borg El-Arab, before travelling to face them away on July 28.
And despite Al Ahly being the most decorated football club in Africa, Rollers manager Nikola Kavazovic has said he has no information about the Reds, adding that his side will not defend against them.
“So far in the Champions League, we have analysed our opponents through video analysis to smallest details,” Kavazovic told the club’s official website.
“For the first time we are going into the unknown; this is the first time that any fresh DVD was not provided so we could analyse the opponent.
“We don’t know anything about them. Some of their players played at the World Cup. If we beat Mamelodi Sundowns, that means that we are on top level for this stage of pre-season.
“But if you don’t have information about your opponent, all you can do is to play your game and to wait how much they will let you play.
“We will try to be balanced in all moments of game. For sure, we will not defend 90 minutes, but also we don’t have the intention to attack them like we going to do in Gaborone,” he added.
Kavazovic has also announced that a number of his players will miss the encounter, including Segolame Boy and Kago Monyake.
Meanwhile, Moluba Moalosi and Ofentse Nato are lacking match fitness and it has not been decided whether they will feature against Al Ahly or not.
