The Red Eagles walked away with the bragging rights in the Cairo derby after they secured a 5-3 victory over Zamalek in a thrilling contest at the Cairo International Stadium.
An own goal from Mohamed Abo Gabal followed by a brace from Ali Maaloul and goals from Mohamed Sherif and Aliou Dieng saw Ahly move to the top of the table with nine points
“We managed to achieve a good result over Zamalek. My players played with a good spirit and were also tactically smarter.”
“We scored five goals; three in the first half and two in the second half. I wanted to score more, but you cannot have everything.”
“We are a big team. We are the champions of Africa, we are the team number three in the world, we are the CAF Super Cup champions… We are Al Ahly.”
“Finally, I would like to thank Al Ahly fans for their constant support to the team. They gave us great energy and motivated us a lot to achieve tonight’s victory.”
