Tariq El-Ashry, the technical director of Smouha, congratulated Al-Ahly club after winning 3/1 in the match that brought the two teams together at Cairo International Stadium in the semi-final round of the Egypt Cup.
Tariq Al-Ashry said in the press conference that his match against Al-Ahly ended in the first 10 minutes after his team conceded two goals, and that the reason for Al-Hani Suleiman changing the goalkeeper early was his lack of focus at the beginning of the match, and it was not his day, and I preferred to push Omar Salah.
Al-Ahly team achieved a big victory over Smouha, with three goals to one, during the match that brought them together this evening, Tuesday, at Cairo International Stadium in the semi-finals of the Egypt Cup, to qualify for the Egypt Cup final and set a date with Pyramids. Ahmed Abdel Qader, Hamdi Fathy and Mahmoud Kahraba scored them, while Hossam Hassan scored. Smouha’s goal from a penalty kick, and tonight’s match witnessed the brilliance of Mahmoud Abdel Moneim Kahraba, who returned to the official participation with Al-Ahly after a period of absence that lasted about 15 months, before which he was suspended for 6 months in the Turkish League, where Kahraba scored a goal and set up two goals, one for Ahmed Abdel Qader and the second for Hussein Al-Shahat.
The technical director added to Smouha, “I have no problem with leaving because of the intention of some people to dismiss me and my departure from Smouha’s training, and there are others within the board of directors who adhere to me, and the truth is sad to work in such a climate, stressing that I did not want Khaled Sobhi to leave Al-Ahly or contract with Ziad Tariq.
As for Muhammad Shabana’s position, Al-Ashry explained, “I thank Zamalek club for its position with me regarding Mahmoud Shabana … explaining that the contract stipulates his return to Zamalek in January, but after I contacted Al-Abyad officials and explained the difficulty of the situation, I waited for Ferreira’s decision and persuaded him to leave the player to Smouha for the end of the season.”
