The former Egyptian and Zamalek star said on Ontime Sports: “We do not like to talk about the difficulties we are going through, represented by a numerical shortage and a long travel. We have reached our goal, thanks to God.”
He continued, “I thank the players, they were men. The media knows Al-Masry’s conditions and the list’s crisis.”
Al-Masry compensated for a 2-1 loss in the first leg to qualify for the group stage.
He will know his competitors after the draw that takes place on December 23.
Al-Masry may fall into one group with his compatriot Pyramids because of the difference in their classification in the lottery.
