I have always had a problem with Al-Ahly's style of play. It reminds me of the Arsenal of yesteryear.
They used to be referred to as 'boring, boring Arsenal'. Not any more.
The push-and-run style of Ahly can put you to sleep.
I think that is why Aboutrika doesn't want to leave and try his luck in Europe.
The kind of football Ahly play was played by Tottenham Hotspur of the 50s. More often than not they dive a lot and get away with it because referees are too soft with them.
The referee for this last match against Etoile actually issued a red card against them. It's unheard of against Al Ahly.
Clubs must be effective but be entertaining at the same time.
Boring, boring Al-Ahly.
