Ahli midfielder Ahmed Hassan retracted his earlier statement that he would never visit Algeria again following the unfortunate incidents that marred his side’s clash against JS Kabylie.
The Egypt skipper said on Monday he would not travel to Algeria ‘under any circumstances’ after Ahli’s bus was stoned before and after the ill-tempered African Champions League clash, which Kabylie won 1-0.
“I might have taken the decision of not playing in Algeria again in a moment of nervousness after the pressure we were subjected to,” Hassan said on Ahli’s official website on Thursday.
“(Ahli football director) Hadi Khashaba sat down with me and asked me to reconsider that decision.
“I do not mind reversing it, although I thought that was the best decision after seeing the behavior of Algerian fans.”
Ahli said they filed a complaint to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) against Kabylie over a number of incidents.
