Rene Weiler, Al-Ahly's coach, preferred to stay in Egypt rather than return to Switzerland in light of the global crisis of the Coronavirus.
Rene Weiler is in a hotel with 430 rooms in Cairo and only 10 managers meet at breakfast.
The Swiss spoke to "aargauerzeitung" about his time in Egypt, saying: "Logically, I would like to be with my family. Fortunately, things are improving well and I also have a responsibility here."
"As long as we do not know what the near future looks like, I will continue to work here, for example, team development, types of training and my personal skills. I have also read a lot and trained myself in the hotel gymnasium and have a lot of time to think."
The Swiss run a day 10 kilometers, which takes 46 minutes of his time per day.
Weiler talked about dealing with the Coronavirus crisis, "I am not an expert. But the Corona crisis shows that a certain degree of organization is necessary in every area. I hope that football will recover as well."
Rene Weiler led Al-Ahly in 31 games, winning 25, drawing 4 and losing a single match.
