Al Ahly coach apologises for title failure

African Football

Al Ahly assistant coach Samy Komsan has apologised to the supporters after failing to defend the Egyptian Premier League title.

The Red Devils were pipped to the league title by Zamalek with a game to spare earlier in the week, ending the club's six-year hold on the title.

Despite missing out on the league title, Pitso Mosimane's charges finished third at the Club World Cup and won yet another CAF Champions League title.

The Al Ahly assistant coach says they will look to bounce back in the Egypt Cup after apologising to the fans.
