Abdul Hafeez said after the end of the match: “Today’s victory is very important and I was very worried, especially as we were returning from a long journey and it was important to win.”
“We are winning the league championship and it is great to win a big result, but the most important thing is the three points.”
“We have great confidence in all the players. Ali Maaloul, the key to good play, Ahmed Fathi participated in a new position in addition to Mohamed Hani, and he is very happy with Yasser Ibrahim’s performance in today’s match, which I consider one of the best players.”
And he added, “The most important thing is that we are in our situation, and the competitor does not care about us, what matters to us is our case.”
And Abdul Hafeez praised the performance of the alternative Mahmoud Abdel Moneim, “Kahraba”, who scored two goals and scored.
He said: “Our confidence in the capabilities of Kahraba is the reason for his inclusion, and he has more to offer with us. We are different and our interest in the players is better.”
“We have before us an important match with the Arab contractors, which offers good results with Captain Emad Al-Nahhas.”
“The match with the Arab contractors will be a strong rehearsal for the ES Sahel match, and I think it will be the same picture to confront the Tunisian team,” he said.
