Zamalek SC head coach Jesualdo Ferreira has expressed his frustration after the Cairo derby draw last night against Al Ahly SC.

Egyptian Premier League defending champions shared the spoils with Al Ahly in a blockbuster 2-2 draw on Sunday evening.

Egyptian international Mohamed Sherif opened the scoring early in the first half to give ‘The Red Devils’ an early lead before Achraf Bencharki equalised in the 68th minute. Eight minutes later Shikabala found the back of the net in what they all thought was a winning goal. But Salah Mohsen stepped up to secure a point for 42 times Egyptian Premier League champions.

The draw wasn’t a bad result for Al Ahly SC as they maintain the four-point gap between themselves and Zamalek SC in the Egyptian Premier League table with Al Ahly having three games in hand.

“We didn’t have a good start but we improved in the second half and the latter stages of the game were difficult,” Ferreira to the media according to Kingfut

“The performance levels dropped after we took the lead, but we still had chances to score towards the end of the game.

“If you compare the number of their [Al Ahly’s] chances and ours, it shows that we were the better side and I am proud of the team.

“I did not like the result because we deserved to win, but we will have to wait and see who see who can win the title.”

“The competition in Egypt is tough because we have to play another game in just two days, and Al Ahly is also under pressure now.

This system must change because it does not make sense to continue playing league games until September every season.”
