Former Esperance coach: Al-Ahly qualified with 70%, and Esperance will not present a worse match

Maher Al-Kanzari, coach of the Tunisian Olympic team and former coach of Esperance, confirmed that Al-Ahly club deserved to win yesterday against Tunisian Esperance, in the match that brought the two teams together in Rades in the first leg of the semi-finals of the African Champions League, which ended with the victory of the red team with a clean goal.

Al-Kanzari said in statements to the “Be On Time” program, Al-Ahly deserved to beat Esperance because it was the best, and in return, Esperance was not in its day or its level, and Al-Ahmar was more organized, and the victory that Al-Ahly achieved is highly moral for the next round, and certainly Esperance and Al-Ahly are two big clubs. And they presented a wonderful picture of African football.

The former Esperance coach added, I hope that Esperance will return to its level in the return match in Cairo, Al-Ahly owns 70% of the qualification rates, but I do not think that Esperance will present worse than yesterday’s match, and the first round ended in favor of Al-Ahly, and the two teams are the best in Africa and I hope the winner of them crowns the title.

Al-Kanzari pointed out that the defeated coach has always made a mistake and the winner becomes a hero, and in general there were 5 or 6 players in Esperance who were not at their level and this affected the team’s collective form, and Al-Ahly yesterday crossed the bottleneck, and its players made the right decisions in all the balls.

And the former Esperance coach concluded, saying, “Amr Al-Soulia, Alio Diang and Hamdi Fathi at certain times came down to play with the heart of the defense, and these players were the most influential in the result of the match, as well as Ali Maaloul and Akram Tawfiq ahead of a distinguished match, and Esperance is a great team capable of responding in Cairo there are 90 Accurate".
