CAIRO – 10 October 2019: Al-Ahly football club is set to receive the 2018-2019 Egyptian League trophy in a major celebration on Thursday evening in the presence of the first team players, coaching staff, board members and high profile sports figures in Egypt.

Under the slogan “ Al-Ahly do not know the impossible”, the ceremony will be held in one of the biggest hotels in Cairo to celebrate one of the toughest league titles in the club’s history.

Al-Ahly clinched the league title after a fierce race with Zamalek, who were leading the league table almost the whole season.

A very tough road was taken by Al Ahly to reach this point of the journey; a bad start with the French coach, Patrice Carteron, many points wasted. The gap between Al Ahly and Zamalek reached 20 points due to postponed games.

Many injures hit the team in the middle of the season, the board of directors sacked Carteron and appointed Mohamed Youssef as a caretaker before hiring Martin Lasarte. Al Ahly signed many players like Ramadan Sobhy and Hussein El Shahatat the winter market who helped the team to achieve the title.

The team achieved many victories at the last games of the season, meanwhile, Zamalek wasted points, sacked Christian Gross and was unstable in the latest stages of the season to give their arch rivals, Al-Ahly to win the league.
