Arab contractors defeat Al Ahly 1-0 in the Egyptian League | Video highlights
Al Ahly continued their poor performance in the Egyptian League with a shocking 1-0 defeat against Arab contractors.
Ahly’s elimination from the Arab championship added more woes for the Reds less than two weeks after losing the African Champions League final to Tunisia’s Esperance in Rades.
A few hours after the Zayed Cup exit, Ahly terminated the contract of French coach Patrice Carteron, promoting assistant coach Mohamed Youssef to the position of caretaker manager.
League leaders Zamalek chalking up a sixth consecutive league win on Monday, Ahly needed to win their first of a series of rescheduled games to remain in touch with their bitter Cairo rivals.
Champions Ahly currently lie at the bottom of the Premier League table in round 16 with 11 points.
