CAIRO, 15 September 2019:Al Ahly coach Rene Weiler said his team wasted several easy chances against Equatorial Guinea's Cano Sport, which could double the result.

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 pitch condition was bad and we could not dominate the game," Weiler said. "The result is good and will make it easier for us in the second leg."

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 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.
