Al Ahly boss Lasarte apologises to fans after Sundowns defeat
Al Ahly manager Martin Lasarte has apologised to the club’s fans following the Reds’ 5-0 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Champions League.
The Reds were humiliated in the first-leg of the quarter-finals of the CAF Champions League, as goals Zwane, Arendse, Nascimento, Sirino, and Mahlambi earned the South African a big advantage ahead of the return-leg.
This marks Al Ahly’s biggest defeat in the African competitions, which made the Uruguayan manager issue apology to the club’s supporters following the game.
“We have certainly played a bad game, and we need to work in the upcoming period,” Lasarte said in his post-match press conference.
“I would like to send a message to the Al Ahly fans who attended the game in South Africa, as well as the ones who watched the game on TV. We are sorry.
“We are embarrassed and apologize to you. There is nothing else to be said. We will talk less and work more from now on,” he added.
Al Ahly will host Sundowns in Suez next Saturday, but before that, they will face Misr El-Makkasa in the Egyptian Premier League on Wednesday, April 10.
