“I’ve coached many football clubs and when join a club like Al Ahly and Mamelodi Sundowns you have to win. Doesn’t matter if you win a trophy 10 times, you have to win it again.

“I’m grateful for the support from Mahmoud El-Khatib, who’s a legend, and Sayed Abdelhafiz as well as head of transfers Amir Tawfik. I also received a warm welcome from the players but they already knew me,” he added.
