Haitham Shaaban: Absences will not prevent Ceramica from presenting a strong match against Zamalek


Haitham Shaaban, director of the Ceramica team, promised to present a strong match against Zamalek, despite the impressive absences that hit the team recently, expressing his satisfaction with the team’s performance in its match against Al Ittihad of Alexandria, which was held yesterday evening, in the thirty-first round of the Premier League competition, which ended in a negative draw.

The technical director of Ceramica said in statements to the seventh day: “We faced a strong opponent led by a great and respected technical staff led by Captain Hossam Hassan, but our players had the upper hand in most of the course of the meeting, and we missed more than one opportunity to score through Shadi Hussein, Mohamed Ibrahim and Mido Jaber.”

Shaaban continued: “We imposed our style of play on the Alexandrian Al-Ittihad team, which was playing on its land. Everyone knows how difficult it is to face the leader of the gap at the Alexandria Stadium, but Ceramica players adhered to the instructions of the technical staff, and the performance came out distinctly, and we lacked success to win.”

Haitham Shaaban enumerated the gains of the meeting, saying: “Going out with a clean sheet for the first time in several games is a good thing for us, and the product of a great work from Mustafa Afifi, the guards coach with Amer Amer, as well as the entire technical staff with the defense and midfield line, also Mustafa Saad Messi is one of the most important gains The meeting, as he is a young player from the club, we relied on him in the second division, and he is doing so well with us in the Premier League during that period.”

He continued: “I am very happy with Sherif Dabos return and his participation in part of the meeting after a long absence due to injury, as well as the players’ response to the tactical flexibility. We started the meeting with three players in the defense line, then we changed the way to a stadium with four, and the players excelled in both ways.”

And he concluded his speech by saying: “We closed the file of the Alexandrian match, and we are now focusing on the next Zamalek match. We look forward to presenting a strong match against the leaders of the standings, and to overcome the absences that suddenly occurred to the team with the injury of Saleh Jumaa Al-Taweelah, and the departure of Ahmed Yasser Rayan to the Turkish League.”
