CAIRO: Zamalek coach Reiner Hollmann said that his players confidence in their own abilities is the only key to beating Ahli in the CAF Champions League on Sept. 14.
The Whites have only beaten their arch rivals once in the last 15 meetings and the upcoming game will be a make or break to revive their hopes of reaching the Champions League semi final.
Beating AhlY is a question of getting my players to believe they re good enough to do so, Hollmann told FIFA.com on Thursday.
The German tactician stated that Zamalek is a sleeping giant, adding that it will take a lot of effort to bring the club back as Egyptian or African Champions.
Zamalek were a very good team but there has been some trouble in the club. They have lost four good years and now looking to move on.
This club needs stability and discipline and I m working to try and achieve that, concluded the former Ahly boss.
Zamalek enter the Ahly clash after their 3-0 defeat to ASEC Mimosas left them third of group A in the CAF Champions League quarter final one point behind the Ivorian champions.
