Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry has announced he is sticking to all of the clubs players and asserted that no one would be excluded.

"I will not exclude any player. We still need all the players especially during the second round of the Egyptian Premier League season," the 56-year-old tactician told his club’s official website on Tuesday.

El-Badry made it clear that the team's African squad is only for the first round and there is an opportunity for any other player who can prove his worth.

"The squad is still meaningless. The registering time ends this month and a chance is still there for unregistered players," he added.

The coach has also expressed enthusiasm and optimism ahead the upcoming championships – the Egyptian Super Cup and Egyptian Champions League.

Egyptian Premier League title-holders, Ahly, will represent Egypt in the African Champions League this season alongside runners-up Zamalek.

Ahly are leading this season's league table with 45 points, five ahead of second-placed Maqassa who still have one match on their hands.
