Ramon Diaz speaks about Egyptian football, potential summer signings
Pyramids are currently second in the Egyptian Premier League table with 57 points, just one point behind league leaders Al Ahly who have two games in hand.
In an interview with Sada El-Malaeb, Ramon Diaz was asked about the differences between the Egyptian League and the Saudi Pro League.
“Saudi football depends on skill and technical ability on the pitch, whereas Egyptian football relies on pace, strength, and fitness levels,” said Diaz.
The former Al Hilal manager was also asked about his relationship with Hossam El-Badry. He replied, saying: “He [El-Badry] is a former player and manager, so we have a good understanding with each other. Our aim is to get the best out of this team.”
When asked about a potential return to Al Hilal, Diaz ruled out such possibility, saying: “Every coach dreams of managing a team like Al Hilal, but right now I am committed to this promising project we are building here at Pyramids.”
Diaz was also asked to name the players he would sign at Pyramids if he was given a paper that would be submitted to club president Turki Al-Sheikh.
“Honestly, I would write Carlos Eduardo. He is a fantastic player and I think all European clubs wish they would have him in their team.
“Abdullah Al-Mayouf is also an incredible goalkeeper. There are also players like Salman Al-Faraj and Abdullah Otayf who are really special,” Diaz added.
Pyramids have won four out of their last five league games in the league under Ramon Diaz. They face Al Ahly on Thursday as they look to go top of the league table.
