Former Zamalek midfielder, Ibrahim Salah, criticized Al Ahly’s coach, Marcel Koller, for his tactical approach in the recent Champions League loss to Mamelodi Sundowns. Al Ahly struggled to keep up with Downs and is in danger of being eliminated from the competition.

Salah pinpointed where he believed Al Ahly went wrong, stating that the team should have played with a three-man midfield consisting of Aliou Dieng, Amr El-Sulya, and Hamdy Fathi.

Salah emphasized that Mamelodi Sundowns play modern European football, and Al Ahly should have adapted their tactics accordingly. The 5-2 loss has diminished Al Ahly’s chances of making it to the quarter-finals of the Champions League, leaving the team in a precarious position.

It was evident that Downs was in control of the game from the start until the final whistle, with Al Ahly reduced to mere spectators. Salah believes that a different tactical approach could have given Al Ahly a better chance of competing with Mamelodi Sundowns.

In the bigger picture, Mamelodi Sundowns has not lost any of their last five continental meetings against Al Ahly. This record shows the dominance of Downs over their Egyptian opponents, and Salah’s comments suggest that it is time for Al Ahly to change their approach if they want to compete at the highest level in African club football.

In order to qualify for the next phase of the competition, the Egyptian giants must win their remaining two games and rely on their direct rivals, Al Hilal, to lose against the same opponents, the Brazilians.
