CAIRO: Ittihad coach Taha Basri said his team will depend on a teamwork system because their squad doesn t boast stars.

The former ENPPI coach was responding to quotes attributed to him that he was afraid the available of several stars would cause him problems.

I never said that, because Ittihad don t have stars, Basri told on Sunday.

The star in Egypt is the one who plays in the national team. Ittihad mainly depend on teamwork plays.

The Alexandria-based club signed a host of players in the close season as they aim to improve on last season s tenth-place finish in the Egyptian League.

Despite having a decent history in Egyptian football, Ittihad barely avoided relegation during the past few seasons.
