After another draw in the Egyptian Premier League on Saturday, Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane says his team is not performing badly, but they are not scoring enough goals.
Mosimane was speaking after Al Ahly’s 1-1 draw with Ceramica Cleopatra.
Mosimane said his team have had it difficult in their last two league games, but he said his team were dominating the games, but just not scoring enough.
“Yes, you’re right, we are having difficulties in scoring the goals,” Mosimane said in the post match press conference.
“And then when you don’t score goals, there are reasons that why you don’t score goals, because it is to say we don’t score goals, which is true, but you have to analyse everything.
“Okay, the last two games have been difficult. This game today, it’s a copy of the last game. It’s very difficult to break the barrier, it’s very difficult because sometimes other teams defended with a six, a line of six, a line of four.
“But it’s okay. it’s the opponent’s tactic, and you have to respect that. Because if that tactic was not good, we would not have lost the points in the last two games. But we have to overcome it, and we don’t have to be too emotional about it, but it is a great concern.

“We scored tonight, don’t forget, again. We created a lot of chances, but we don’t finish them. Even last week we created chances, we didn’t score. Yes, that is the problem. No, it’s not a bad performance, it’s bad in scoring, and finishing the opportunities.
“You see it the way you see it. If you don’t score goals, we create a lot of chances we don’t score. and you call that a bad performance. I respect you. For me a bad performance is not creating any chance. I’m not running away that we’re not scoring goals, we scored today, the last three games, we scored three goals.
“Okay. Don’t worry about the games, it depends how you judge performance, for me if we create enough chances for us and we put the opponents in one half for 70 to 80% of the game, I should just worry about how we finish the goals. Okay, that’s my worry.”
