Wael Gomaa praises Salif Coulibaly after Township Rollers clash
The 30-year-old made his debut for Al Ahly on Tuesday as the Reds beat Township Rollers 3-0 in the third round of the CAF Champions League group-stages.
The win put Al Ahly in second place with four points, three behind leaders Espérance, who were victorious against Kampala City FC on Tuesday at home.
“Salif Coulibaly will solve Al Ahly’s defensive problems. His experience will make the difference,” Gomaa told beIN SPORTS.
The six-time CAF Champions League winner has also advised Al Ahly to sign a new defensive midfielder, saying the position is the most important one in the world.
“Al Ahly need a new defensive midfielder because Hossam Ashour and Amr El-Sulya will not be able to complete the season at the same level,” Gomaa said.
“The defensive midfielder is now the most important position in the world,” he added.
Al Ahly will travel to face Township at the Botswana National Stadium on July 27 for the return leg.
