CAIRO: Ahly coach Manuel Jose said that his team is capable of producing World class displays when they take part in the Club World Cup in Japan next month.

After winning their sixth CAF Champions League title, the Cairo giants will be featuring in the competition for the third time in four years.

We are capable of playing modern and respectful football, Jose was quoted as saying by the club s official website.

I advice the Japanese fans to watch our games, which can be more entertaining than Manchester United s.

United will also be taking part in the competition after winning their third UEFA Champions League title last May.

The Portuguese coach added that Ahly s strength comes from the team s unity.

We have a lot of excellent players. Sometimes it s Mohamed Barakat or Mohamed Abou-Trika who stands out, but in general, we play as one strong unit.

Jose insisted that the African champions have the advantage of better preparation for the tournament than their European and South American counterparts.

Because of their pact schedules, European teams have very few days preparations before flying to Japan.

This always hinders their adaptation with the surroundings, and the jet lag affects their players performances.

However, we will be heading to Japan early enough to overcome these problems, concluded Jose.
