Al-Ahly faces Zamalek in Cairo Derby


Egyptian giants Al-Ahly and Zamalek finished preparations in readiness for their postponed match from the 20th week of the Egyptian Premier League on Sunday night at 8:00pm Cairo Local Time at Al-Ahly WE Al-Salam Stadium.

The Egyptian Football Association announced that Spanish referee Jose Luis Munuera will officiate the Cairo derby clash.

Last December, Munuera officiated Spain Classico between Barcelona and Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup.

“We are all focused on winning the league title this season. We are keen to win every game this season, and we aim to achieve the victory over Zamalek in the next match,” Al-Ahly’s interim manager Samy Komsan said after his side’s win over Eastern Company last Wednesday.

It is a great honour to coach a team like Al-Ahly, even if it will be for one game. I would like to thank Mahmoud El-Khatib, the club’s president, and all the board members for their trust.  They always support the coaching staff and the players,” Komsan added according to the club official website.

Al-Ahly parted ways with South African manager Pitso Mosimane.
