Ahly determined to start 2018 with Egypt Super Cup title: Coach

Aya salem | 10 يناير, 2018 4:08 م

Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry has expressed his determination to win the anticipated Egypt Super Cup game against Masry of Port Said at Hazza bin Zayed Stadium in the UAE’s Al-Ain City on Friday 18:00 Cairo Local Time (GMT +2).

“We are doing our best to win the tournament. It will be a great start of the year, especially since we want to overcome our loss in the same competition last year [against arch-rivals Zamalek],” the 57-year-old tactician told reporters during his stay in the UAE.

El-Badry talked about the deficiency the team is suffering in the defensive line, which has been weakened by the injury of key defender Rami Rabea.

“The tight schedule is the key problem with Rabea’s injury. Many substitutes are being prepared, including Mohamed Hani and Saad Samir, who has recovered from his injury,” El-Badry added.

“Masry is a tough opponent. They are hungry for triumph. We faced off in powerful matches, including the Egypt Cup final, where they lost. I am sure they are seeking revenge.”

The coastal-club Masry, under helm of passionate coach Hossam Hassan, are playing in the Super as the runner-ups of the cup, as Ahly won both league and cup last season.

“Defeating Zamalek is very positive for the players’ morale ahead of the game,” El-Badry said.

The Cairo-giants easily won against arch-rivals Zamalek 3-0 on Monday in a league game.

“We have great motivation for winning titles and pleasing the fans,” he concluded.
