Walid Salah El-Din, the star of Al-Ahly and the former Egyptian national team, confirmed that the current generation of the Red Genie is not fierce outside its land, and that he hopes that Al-Ahly will meet the North African teams in the quarter-finals, and move away from the South African champion Sun Downs.
Walid Salah El-Din said in his program “Al-Harif” on Radio On Sport FM, “The current Al-Ahly generation is not as fierce as ours or the generation of Barakat and tired, and it is their good fortune that they played the Club World Cup in Qatar in an atmosphere similar to Egypt, unlike if the tournament was held in Japan the results will be difficult“.
Walid Salah al-Din added, “I was surprised by the level of Al-Ahly in the first half against Al-Merrikh of Sudan, a very difficult level. I said we would lose five in this way, had it not been for our Lord’s concealment and the loss of the penalty kick and then the ability to equalize in deadly times.”“.
And the former Al-Ahly star continued, “I am not afraid of Al-Ahly if he falls against North Africa, Tunisian Esperance, Moroccan Wydad, or any team, because North African teams lost half their strength in the absence of the crowd, and here Al-Ahly becomes stronger as long as there is a good stadium and an atmosphere similar to Egypt.”“.
Walid Salah al-Din added, “I hope that Al-Ahly will face the North African teams in the quarter-finals, and move away from the South African champion Sun Downs so that the red genie does not find it difficult to complete his African campaign to preserve the title.”“.
