Al Ahly Coach Koller Reacts To Egyptian Super Cup Win

Al Ahly coach Marcel Koller was impressed with the spirit shown by his players after his side defeated arch rivals Zamalek 2-0 to lift Egyptian Super Cup on Friday.

Brazilian forward Bruno Savio broke the deadlock in the first half with a fantastic goal while Karim Fouad who came from the bench in the second half doubled the score minutes before the final whistle.

The win gave Al Ahly their 12th Super Cup title, cementing the club’s position as the team with the most titles in the competition.

“Tonight’s title win is a reward for our  players on their hard work during the past period,” Koller said in post match interview.

“In the start of the second half, Zamalek placed pressure on us. However, we were to cope to the pressure after making more than one substitution.

“This game is very special for us, as it is our first game to play in front of such a huge number of our fans. Therefore, I have to thank the officials in UAE for making it possible tonight.”
