Mohammed Yousuf, general coach and acting director of football manager Al Ahli club, said that the first team reached the goal of friendly youth held today at the Youth Stadium in Nasr City, to ensure the readiness of more than one player before facing good relations for this confrontation.
Yousuf stressed that the technical team was trying to equip all players in terms of psychological, physical and technical matters to meet Al-Wasl, which will be held on November 22 at the home of the 16th Zayed Club Arab Champions Cup.
Youssef stressed that Al Ahli respected UAE connections, and that there was strong preparation for the return match, to appear positive and win to complete the championship team tour.
He also praised the young players, emphasizing that the team included players with high levels of competence and skills, and that there were elements of the junior team involved in the first team.
On the other hand, Youssef said: "The technical staff led by Patrice Cartieron did not mention the names of those who left during the winter transfer period," adding that time was still enough to reevaluate a number of things.
