Like today .. Al-Ahly bids farewell to the Confederation in front of Santos, and Jose leaves for Angola

On this day, May 31, 2009, Al-Ahly bid farewell to the African Confederation Championship after suffering a severe defeat at the hands of Angolan Santos by three goals, and leaving the tournament with a penalty shootout 6-5 after 14 kicks for the two teams at Ashkockiros Stadium in the round of 16 of the competition.

Ahmed Bilal, Angolan Gilberto, Ahmed Fathy Shady Mohamed and Ahmed Hassan scored for Al-Ahly, and Flavio wasted in his last touches with the team and Ahmed Ali.

The two teams tied in a penalty shootout, 4-4. The two teams resorted to playing a blow and a kick.

Santos had finished the original time with a hat-trick in which Bebicho scored the first goal in the 27th minute, and his colleague Milax added the second goal in the 76th minute, and Faw added the third goal in the 89th minute.

Al-Ahly played one of its worst matches on African stadiums for a long time, as the team lacked offensive effectiveness, and was also unable to control the midfield even after pushing Ahmed Hassan, captain of the Egyptian national team, who started the match on the bench, and the defenders made a great effort, but they failed to stop the players. Santos can shoot from midfield.

Portuguese Manuel Jose bid farewell to Al-Ahly after the team's exit from African competitions for the second time in a row, as the team came out in a surprise at the hands of Nigerian Cano Pillars, which speeded up the coach's departure from the team, and then the second exit from the Confederation came with recklessness and disdain for the competitor against Santos.

Jose did not leave Angola with the Al-Ahly mission, as he stayed to meet the Angolan national team players, whom he formally trained.

This was the second parting for Jose after training the red giant in two states before he returned to a third state, ending it on May 14, 2012, when he led Al-Ahly in his last match to beat the Financial Stadium by three goals against a goal at the Military College stadium.

Jose won with Al-Ahly 20 titles, namely: “The General League Championship and won it 6 times, the Egyptian Cup and twice the Egyptian Super Cup and won it four times the African Champions League and the African Super Championship four times, while he participated in the FIFA Club World Cup. Three times, in the first and third participation, he won sixth place, and in the second, he won the bronze medal.
