Ibrahim told Ontime Sports: “We have a big match against a big Al-Ahly team. Our ambition is to win the match. I think Al-Ahly is a strong team and has strong players, but at the same time I think that there are some points that we can take advantage of and also we will strive and work hard and if we have the opportunity, we will win.” “.
He explained, “Mousimani is a great technical manager in Africa. He always wins championships and knows what he does and what he needs from the players and from the match. He plays hard, pushes and motivates the players, which is an addition to Al-Ahly.”
He stressed, “Winning Al-Ahly is not easy, but we will do everything we have to win this match. Perhaps Zamalek is better now after winning the league. A week ago we were preparing for Al-Ahly, and they could lose the match if we insist.”
The two teams meet in Niger two weeks later, before the return match in Cairo a week after the first leg.
