Ahmed Abdel Halim, the former Zamalek star, has confirmed that he hopes the rest of the African Champions League matches will be played in Egypt, after Cameroon refused to officially host them today, Monday.
The two poles of Egypt, Al-Ahly and Zamalek, are preparing for the semi-finals of the African Champions League, against Vidad and Raja of Morocco, respectively.
Abdul Halim said: "I see that holding the semi-final from one game on a neutral ground is a loss for both poles".
added: "Therefore, I hope that the rest of the matches will take place in Egypt, and if this happens, the Poles will have a great chance to reach the final match, and this matter will compensate them after the cancellation of the return match that was supposed to be. held in Egypt.".
He continued: "Zamalek is very capable of winning the African title, as the players are good in decisive and influential games, as happened last February after beating Esperance in the African Super Cup and then eliminating them from the quarter-finals of the African Championship, before beating Al-Ahly in the Super Cup.".
He concluded: "Patrice Cartron (Zamalek coach) has shown his amazing ability to lead the games, and I see that Zamalek need 3 games to prepare their ingredients before the Raja match.".
