Mohamed Barakat confirmed that the circumstances of Al-Ahly and Pyramids are different before the local Super Cup match scheduled for tomorrow, Friday, in the Emirates.
Barakat said in televised statements that Al-Ahly is living in a state of stability and distinguished victories, stressing that Pyramids has recently suffered from some technical problems that led to its exit from the African Confederation Cup at the hands of Maromo Gallants.
He pointed out that he had warned Pyramids against the South African Marumo Gallants in the quarter-finals of the Confederation Cup, especially as he was surprised that the match was classified as easy despite the strength of the South African team.
He explained that Pyramids did not respect Maromo Gallants, which led to his exit from the Confederation, stressing that the team suffers from fatigue after this result, but the Super Cup match will be a new opportunity for the team to try to achieve a championship.
Barakat sings about the star of Al-Ahly
Mohamed Barakat also confirmed that Al-Ahly is in a better technical condition before the Super Cup match for the Pyramids team, which suffers from technical and physical problems, but that does not mean anything in the reality of the match, which will be difficult.
He pointed out that Al-Ahly has many distinctive elements, but Marawan Attia remains the most prominent Al-Ahly star in the recent period.
He added, “I must stop at Marawan Attia, because it was a deal that came last January, despite the presence of a number of elements within the team in the same position, but he dealt with calmness and focus in order to reach the starting line-up and convince his coach, Marcel Koller.”
He explained that Swiss Marcel Kohler is a wonderful, calm and organized coach, and the most important thing that distinguishes him is that he deals calmly with the media.
