Patrice Carteron, coach of the Zamalek club, said that he was very respectful of Moein Chaabani, his counterpart in Tunisian Esperance, expressing his happiness at his confrontation for the second time.
Carteron added during his speech at the press conference for the match: “His ranking is among the 70 coaches, he is a young but very good coach who won two consecutive African Champions League matches with Esperance and his team was not affected despite the departure of some elements from him.”
Journalists at the conference asked Carton about the position of his team leader, Shikapala, who had suffered an injury during the past hours. He replied: “My answer will be simple and clear, you will know that tomorrow.”
The coach of the Esperance team concluded his speech by noting that he expected the match to be good for the two teams, whose presence in this match is evidence of their strength.
