Al Ahly are nowhere close to having the Egyptian Premier League title in the bag, according to their football director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz.
The Red Devils claimed a vital 1-0 win over Alexandria’s Al Ittihad in midweek and they currently hold a strong seven-point lead over Misr El Makasa at the top of the log.
Yet, with 33 points still up for grabs, Abdel-Hafiz is quite right to point out that nothing is in the bag just yet.
“Our policy is to respect all competitors and treating each match separately and seriously,” the football director told Al Ahly’s TV channel, as quoted by KingFut.
“Winning the league is not easy and we still have a lot of challenges ahead that we need to deal with wisely.
“Al Ahly’s personality and style can force itself on competitors and same goes for our players.”
He added, “We still have 11 more rounds in the league, it is too early to say that we already won the title as if it is only a matter of time.”
Ahly will continue their EPL campaign with a clash away to relegation-threatened Aswan FC on Sunday 16 April.
