|Mortada Mansour Speaks On Their Clash With Al Alhy by Counceller1: 12:58am On Feb 15|
Zamalek president Mortada Mansour makes a statement that his club will not go on with playing Al Ahly in their upcoming Egyptian Premier League game.
Zamalekwas crowned and given their fourth CAF Super Cup title-winning against Esperance 3-1 thanks to goals from Morocco’s Achraf Bencharki and Youssef Obama.
The Whites are now set to face arch-rivals Al Ahly in the Egyptian Super Cup on February 20th before visiting the Red Devils four days later in their postponed league fixture.
However, the club’s president Mortada Mansour confirmed that his team won’t play the second game against Al Ahly as it might be too much for the players.
“We won’t face Al Ahly on February 24th, it will never happen. We won’t play not of fear of Al Ahly but because I worry about Al Ahly and Zamalek players,” Mansour told Zamalek TV channel.
He then commented on their CAF Super Cup win, praising the Zamalek players and coaching staff.
“We were able to beat the number one candidate to win the CAF Champions League,” he added.
“Esperance are a very strong side and we were able to beat them, I want to thank all the players and coaching staff.
“If referees constantly perform well and the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is implemented, Zamalek won’t lose any title,” he concluded.
The Whites Knights will face Esperance again in the CAF Champions quarter-finals, the first leg will take place on either February 28th or 29th with the second leg taking place a week later
