CAIRO, 15 September 2019:The official Facebook page of Al-Ahly published a picture of the celebration of the players after scoring the second goal by WalidSoliman in Cano Sport on the social networking site Facebook.
Al Ahly defeated Equatorial Guinea champions Cano Sport 2-0 on Saturday in the first leg of the 32nd round of the African Champions League.
The Al-Ahly players celebrated in support of their teammateMo'menZakaria following the injury he suffered in the last period.
Weiler was delighted to win in his first match with Al Ahly, stressing that the team has enough time to prepare for Zamalek in the domestic Super Cup match scheduled for September 20.
The club's football board confirmed that the board of directors, headed by Mahmoud Al-Khatib, decided almost two months ago to take care of all the costs of treating Mo'menZakaria at home and abroad.
The club sacked their former manager, Martin Lasarte, after the team elimination from the Egyptian Cup, having lost to Pyramids at the round of 16.
Weiler is one of the promising managers in Europe and the highlight of his career was managing Belgian giants, Anderlecht, for one year.
Weiler’s best experience as a manager was in Switzerland where he managed FC Aarau, the team he represented as a player.
The Swiss manager led them to win promotion to the first division before leaving them in 2015 to Germany where he managed FC Nürnberg.
Since 2013, Al-Ahly failed to win CAF Champions League title and the club fans are eager to win their beloved competition again.
