- Yasmine El Tohamy - Al Ahly head coach, Pitso Mosimane, reflected on their win over Arab Contractors and explained how they completed the comeback.

Al Ahly beat Arab Contractors 3-2 in the Egyptian Premier League on Thursday night in a hard-fought encounter.

The Reds were 2-0 down at half-time, but goals from Taher Mohamed Taher, Mohamed Sherif and Mohamed Magdy Afsha, helped them come out victorious.

Commenting on the game, Pitso Mosimane praised his players for their efforts but said that they should’ve made the most out of their chances.

“I don’t think the two halves of the match were different because we were able to create chances in both of them,” he said during the post match press conference.

“In the first half, we created a lot of opportunities in the first 10-15 minutes, and we should have taken advantage of them. This also happened in the Al Ahly Bank game.

“This means that there is a problem and we must address it.”

“I think we like to play under pressure. Today we were able to come back in the result and win, and this is dangerous because it may not happen next time.

“But the positive part is the spirit of the players and the fight and always having faith in our ability to win,” he added.

Mosimane then revealed how he reacted at half-time in order to push his players.

“Since my arrival in Egypt, I have not gotten angry at the players as much as today. I always try to be calm, but today we were not good.” he continued.

“I must also praise the technical staff because we made some strange decisions that changed the way we play. We took different decisions, but they had positive consequences.”

“I changed the way of playing three times in the second half and we were running against time. We had to score quick goals to turn the game around.

“At one point I made Afsha play in the No. 8 position instead of 10, and pushed Marwan Mohsen and Mohamed Sherif as strikers.

“I also put Hamdi Fathi in the defensive line, and we sometimes played 3-4-3,” he explained.

The South African concluded his press conference by talking about goalkeeper Ali Lotfi, who replaced the suspended Mohamed El-Shennawy.

“He did not play poorly, he was unlucky because we did not defend well. He didn’t make any mistakes in the two goals we conceded,” he said

“Some people told me that there is a penalty kick that was not awarded to us, I did not watch it yet. I will watch the replay at home, but I will not comment on the referees’ decisions,” he concluded.

Al Ahly now top the league table with 20 points to their name, one ahead of second place Zamalek and with one game in hand.

They will await Zamalek’s game against Aswan next Saturday to see if they can cement this position.
