Following their progress to the CAF Champions League group stages, Al Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry wants to lift the club continental trophy.

Speaking after their 1-0 win on aggregate over South Africa's Bidvest Wits, the Red Devils manager says his goal is to win the cup.

Ahly missed their experienced campaigners in captain Hossam Ghaly and Nigerian striker Junior Ajayi due to hamstring injuries, but still they progressed to the next round.


The 57-year-old coach praised his players, saying their experience allowed them to take control of the match and prevent the home side from scoring.

Ahly played to a 0-0 draw in Johannesburg in the second leg of the round of 32 allowing them to join 15 teams in the group stages.

“It was a tough game but we managed to achieve our target,” El-Badry said.

“My main goal is to win the CAF Champions League title with Al Ahly.

“We deserved a penalty in the first half, and Amr Gamal’s chance would have killed off the tie.”

Zamalek and Ahly are also in the next stage of the tournament as they want to to take Egypt back to glory when it comes to CAF club competitions.
