Coulibaly can’t play under pressure & decided to escape -El Badry
Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry said on Sunday that the reason Ivorian striker Souleymane Coulibaly’s left the team is that the player is unprofessional and failed to play under pressure due to the games’ sequence.
“Ahly always play under pressure, as we always have to win the game, but Coulibaly could not bear playing under pressure and decided to escape,” the Ahly coach said.
Ahly has lodged a complaint with FIFA against Coulibaly after he missed training session two weeks ago without permission. Coulibaly said he had flown to London for private reasons, according to football director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz.
The 22-year-old later said he sought to terminate his contract with Ahly, a request that was rejected by the Cairo giants.
El-Badry says that Ahly have had foreign players in his squad, including the current players Tunisian winger Ali Maaloul and Nigerian striker Junior Ajayi, all of whom have met the fans’ hopes and have had a superb relationship with the team’s management and the team.

“There is a big difference between Ajayi, Maaloul and the Ivorian striker,” the Ahly tactician said.
The Cairo giants, who recently won the Egyptian Premier League title, are competing in the two domestic competitions Premier League and Egypt Cup, and are participating in the CAF Champions League and the Arab tournament.
