Carteron to remain Al Ahly boss despite CAF Champions League loss
Patrice Carteron is set to remain in charge of Cairo giants Al Ahly for the foreseeable future despite losing the CAF Champions League title.
The French manager was appointed as the club’s head coach last summer, guiding Al Ahly to the CAF Champions League final, which his side lost against Esperance de Tunis.
Club president Mahmoud El-Khatib reviewed Carteron’s position and met with the manager on Thursday, assuring him that he will continue as the Reds’ boss.
“I will not disclose the details of the meeting on the instructions of the club president,” Carteron said following his meeting with El-Khatib.
“I will continue with the team, and I will hold meetings with the football committee in the upcoming days to discuss many issues that concern the team,” he added.
Since his appointment, Carteron has led Al Ahly in 20 games across all competitions, winning 12, drawing five, while losing three.
El-Khatib promised Carteron and the fans several new signings in the January transfer window, as Al Ahly play in a number of competitions, the league, Egypt Cup, Egypt Super Cup, Arab Club Champions Cup, as well as the new version of the CAF Champions League.
