“About the 10-0 win? Yes, it’s good. It is better for us [to get] three points, which is more important to us. Of course, I want to improve our organization on the field because we didn’t train too much with them. We want to introduce our ideas – this match was good because they tried to follow our organisation, our style, and our ideas. I am also happy because the guys who entered during the match did as well as those players who started,’’ the former Al Ahly of Egypt coach said.
