Egypt's former Ahly skipper Hossam Ghaly has stressed his loyalty to his boyhood club despite his recent sudden move to Al-Nasr of Saudi Arabia in a free summer transfer and revealed he is considering retiring international career. In a lengthy interview with Ahram Sports weekly magazine, Ghali said "It's impossible for me to escape from Ahly. This didn't happen during my entire career. My contract just expired and the domestic competition's schedule wasn't fixed regularly and I needed to be part of a fixed tournament … I was offered a move from Al-Nasr club which I joined in 2009 and I have good memories from my spell there," The 36-year-old, who started his career with Ahly's first team in 2000, had successful journeys playing abroad in Europe with Feyenoord, Tottenham Hotspur, Derby County and Lierse before settling down at his boyhood club since 2014. "I expect an Ahly return again. I really hope this happens as I can't live without Ahly. I will reconsider my future when my spell at Al-Nasr ends. I am thinking about starting a managerial career after my retirement as a player." Il Capitano, as many fans like to nickname him, also discussed his relationships with teammates and coach, commenting on several disputes he was involved in with colleagues over the years. More»

Ahly's technical staff is confident of achieving a positive result against Tunisia's Esperance to ensure a place at the African Champions League semis according to assistant coach Ahmed Ayoub. "We didn't speak about the first leg as we our totally focused on the preparation for the next game," Ayoub told an Egyptian radio station on Tuesday. "Esperance is a big team but we are confident that we can beat them and reach the semi final," he added. The Reds have been frustrated to a 2-2 home draw last Sunday. The Cairo giants are in a must-win situation in the return match in Tunisia next Saturday continu their quest for a first tile since 2013 alive. "Morale will be a key factor in the coming match. We have some experienced players while others haven't been under such pressure but in general the whole team is able to pass this situation. "I hope that we wouldn't concede any goals as this will make our task more difficult. Our game needs to be balanced. "The mission is difficult but not impossible and we won in different occasions before in Rades," the assistant coach concluded. The eight-time African Champions have beaten Esperance in Rades 2-1 after a 2-2 home draw to win the title of the 2012 edition. More»

Egyptian Al-Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry has stated that his side was better than their Tunisian rivals Esperance, regardless of the result, in the first leg of the African Champions League quarterfinals held on home soil Sunday. "Ahly wasted many scoring chances and were able to dominate the field, and but final result doesn't really represents that performance," the 59-year-old tactician stated on the club's official website. The Cairo giants were held to a 2-2 draw after coming from behind twice. Critics blamed goalkeeper Sherif Ekrami for a surprisingly humble performance. "I refuse to focus on Ekrami individually. Defensive mistakes cost us the two goals. The referee cancelled a penalty for us and this could have changed the result," El-Badry added. El-Badry insisted that Ahly can still make it to the semifinals, expressing full confidence in his squad's appearance in the second leg away, next Saturday. "I hope we don't pressure the players too much ahead of the away game in Tunisia, especially as we still have a chance to qualify for the semifinals. The next match needs a balanced strategy," he added. The Reds are heading to Rades this week, hoping for a victory on Saturday in order to pursue their quest for a first Champions League title since 2013. More»

An error by Ahly's keeper Sherif Ekrami allowed Esperance to claim a precious 2-2 away draw on Saturday in the first leg of the African Champions League quarter finals. The 34-year-old international keeper rose to catch a long range free kick from Ghailane Chaalali, but the ball slipped between his hands into his own net, bringing the score to a 2-1 lead for Esperance in the 48th minute after first half goals from Abdallah El-Said in the 10th minute and Yassine Khenessi in the 20th minute. Moroccan striker Walid Azaro earned the draw for the eight-time African Champions in the 67th minute, giving little hope for the Reds ahead of next week’s return leg in Rades. Action started as early as the 5th minute when Ahmed El-Sheikh squandered an easy chance as he intercepted a low cross from Azaro inside the six yards but he put it in the hands of the Tunisian keeper. Five minutes later, the Reds hit Esperance on the counter as Ahmed Fathi sent a long ball to El-Said, who unleashed Azaro clear in the area only to be fouled by Montassar El-Talbi. El-Said converted the penalty kick on the right bottom corner after sending the keeper in the wrong direction. Azaro could have doubled the lead seven minutes later when El-Sheikh swung in a cross from the right, but his header went wide. The visitors pressed forward to cause Ahly's defence some anxious moments. Ekrami was alerted by a powerful shot from Yassine Khenessi, but he managed to block it firmly. In the 20th minute, Chaalali flicked a corner to Khenessi – unmarked at the far post – to score the equaliser from close range. It took some time for the hosts to regain their composure, but they were back again on offense and Azaro was guilty of a glaring mistake when he missed the target from inside the box with only the keeper to beat. However, Ahly seemed unable to maintain their domination on the game, especially with their rivals applying high pressure to prevent their build-up play. The hosts were stunned just after the interval by Chaalali's goal against the course of play. Coach Hossam El-Badri brought in Walid Soliman and Saleh Gomaa to bolster his attack against a packed Tunisian defense. Finally, Azaro converted Ahly's domination when he picked the rebound from Gomaa's free kick to slot home the equaliser in the 67th minute. As Esperance sat back on defense, Ahly attacked in waves and keeper Moez Ben Cherifia produced some impressive saves to deny Ajayi, Fathi and veteran striker Emad Meteb. The Reds will now head to Rades hoping for a victory on Saturday to pursue their quest for a first title since 2013. More»

Scoring an away goal would be Esperance's primary target in their anticipated African Champions League clash against Egypt's Ahly, their goalkeeper Moez Ben Chrifia said on Thursday. Ahly host Esperance at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab stadium on Saturday in the first-leg of the Champions League quarters before facing the Tunisian side away from home one week later. "Our target will be to score against Ahly in Alexandria, whatever the result of the game," Ben Chrifia told Tunisian newspaper Assabah. The international keeper believes Esperance are capable of earning a "positive result" in the first leg, saying his side are fully prepared for the crunch tie. "We are now in our top form; we just need to believe in our capabilities and our ability to overcome Ahly." The Tunisian champions reached the quarter-finals as Group C leaders with 12 points, three ahead of second-placed Sundowns of South Africa who won the last edition of the Champions League. The 26-year-old admits that Ahly's clash will be very tough, saying the Cairo giants are Esperance's toughest opponent in their bid to win their first Champions League title since 2011. "They are our main opponent in our bid to win the title but we are ready for any opponents as we are looking to win the title," he added. More»

Egypt winger Mohamed Salah missed Liverpool's training session on Tuesday due to illness, one day before the club host Sevilla in their opening group-stage game of the European Champions League. "The No.11 was absent as the Reds continued preparations for the opening game of their Champions League group-stage campaign … on Wednesday night," Liverpool said on their official website on Tuesday. "Salah reported to Melwood but was sent home as a precaution," Liverpool further noted. It was not immediately clear if Salah would be a doubt for the Sevilla clash. "He was in and the doc told me Mo Salah can train but what would be best for him is if he doesn’t have to. He has a little bit of a sore throat," said Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp. "(It) shouldn’t be that serious so he can’t spread the virus if there is one. At this moment we expect him back tomorrow morning for normal training." The 25-year-old has made a superb start to his Liverpool career, scoring three goals in his first six competitive matches with the Reds. He said earlier on Tuesday he was looking forward to the Sevilla game. "I'm very, very excited to start the Champions League games at Anfield. I would like to win that game," Salah said on Liverpool's official website. More»

Egypt's Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry has blamed referee Ahmed Hamdy for the team's surprise 1-1 draw with Talae El-Geish in their opening Egyptian Premier League game on Sunday. "The referee's decision affected the outcome of the game," El-Badry said at the post-match press conference. "We can accept the referee's mistakes, but with this huge number of bad decisions it's difficult to accept," he said. El-Geish stunned Ahly when defender Assem Salah converted from the spot nine minutes before the break, sparking furious protests from Ahly players and coach Hossam El-Badry who argued that the penalty should not have been awarded. The Red Devils, champions for the past two seasons, were denied a clear penalty at the other end shortly afterwards. But playmaker Ahmed El-Sheikh, back at the club after a one-year loan spell with Maqassa, curled home a free kick in the 57th minute to equalise. "The team deserved more than a penalty kick as well, because after the game I watched all the referee's mistakes in a video review to make sure of what I said in the press conference," El-badry added. "The opponent's penalty was not valid, because the ball didn't touch the player's hand," the Ahly coach concluded. More»

Defending champions Ahly had to settle for a surprise 1-1 draw with Talae El-Geish in their opening Egyptian Premier League game on Sunday after some controversial refereeing decisions. El-Geish stunned Ahly when defender Assem Salah converted from the spot nine minutes before the break, sparking furious protests from Ahly players and coach Hossam El-Badry who argued that the penalty should not have been awarded. The Red Devils, champions for the past two seasons, were denied a clear penalty at the other end shortly after but playmaker Ahmed El-Sheikh, back to the club after a one-year loan spell with Maqassa, curled home a free kick in the 57th minute to equalise. Ahly pressed forward in the dying stages but squandered a couple of clear-cut chances to settle for a disappointing draw, just like arch foes and perennial rivals Zamalek who were also held to a 1-1 draw with El-Entag El-Harby on Saturday. Moroccan striker Walid Azaro was the only summer signing to be included in the starting line-up but was guilty of wasting some easy chances. More»

A rejuvenated Zamalek side failed to meet the expectations as they were held to a 1-1 draw on Saturday by El-Entag El-Harby in their season debut. New Montenegrin coach Nebojša Jovović has fielded 8 new recruits to bolster the team who fired blank last season. However they were stunned as early as the 9th minute when Ahmed Shedid sent a long ball to Omar El-Said, just outside the area, to feint past defenders and shoot at the right bottom side of the goal. It didn't took much for the White to react as new Congolese striker Kabongo Kasongo netted the equaliser in the 27th minute after taking advantage of a blunder by defender Loai Wael to skip past the keeper and score in the empty nets. He could have doubled his tally a few minutes later after being set up to a one-on-one with the keeper but his poor effort was blocked. Zamalek pressed hard and Jovovic kept on bringing on new faces like wingers Ahmed Madbouli and Abdallah Gomaa additionally to striker Bassem Morsi to claim a winner but that was in vain. Earlier in the day, Ismaily battled back from 2-1 down to beat hosts Ittihad of Alexandria 4-2 at the end of 90 minutes. The Dervishes scored three goals in 16 minutes through Moussa Camara 76, Richard Baffour 80 and Ibrahim Hassan 90 to cancel an early lead from Ahmed El-Alfy, 14, and Camacho, 36. More»

Egypt's evergreen goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary remains defiant about his side's 2018 World Cup chances, insisting they will not blow the opportunity. The Pharaohs are closing in qualification to Russia after beating Uganda 1-0 in Alexandria in a Group E clash on Tuesday. The North African giants are hot favourites as a win over Congo next month will put them in pole position to secure the sole ticket. And veteran goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary insists the players won't blow the chance to represent their country at the global showpiece. “The World Cup is a dream that we need to reach out for, the fans and all the Egyptian sports community have to back us up,” ONSport satellite channel. “Every single player in the Egyptian squad has his heart set on the same dream, and by all means this is not an easy time for any of us. “We will not give up on the World Cup dream, this is something the Egyptian fans want more than anything,” he added. The victory put Egypt on top of Group E again with nine points, two ahead of second-placed Uganda. Ghana sit third with five points and Congo languish at the bottom of the group with only one point.
