“Congratulations to Monterrey. It clearly showed that we haven’t played many competitive fixtures recently. The other teams at this tournament have been able to prepare more effectively. We also had some injured players, and we simply couldn’t compensate for all that. However, my players gave their all under the circumstances. I would like to thank them and also the Moroccan fans who provided fantastic support.”
Mohamed Youssef, coach of Al Ahly SC

“I’m pleased and have to compliment my team. We went into the match with the right attitude. We controlled the match, particularly in the first half, let the ball run and created many chances. We were determined to win today’s match. Now we need to regroup and focus on the tasks ahead so that we can get back on the road to success as soon as possible, both nationally and internationally.”
Jose Cruz, coach of CF Monterrey
