Mohamed El Shenawy, Al Ahly’s football first team goalkeeper and captain, spoke on Friday in the pre-match press conference of our game against Mamelodi Sundowns.
In the pre-match press conference, El Shenawy talked about the team’s ambitions for the game and the importance of the match to the team.
“We all know the importance of this match. All the players are focused on the match. We are fully concentrated on winning the three points.”
“We respect all the teams that we face. Of course, Sundowns are a big team and we talked with the players about the importance of winning the three points.”
“Some of our players were tired during the past period due to being overwhelmed with a lot of games over the last few months.”
“However, our coaching and medical staffs handle the situation well to prevent us from picking up any injuries.”
“Of course, the attendance of the fans in Saturday's game will motivate us a lot to win the match. We all saw their support during the last FIFA Club World Cup in Abu Dhabi.”
