Ahly coach Hossam El-Badry revealed that he is not thinking of leaving the Cairo giants now despite receiving offers to join other teams.

"I have two official offers to leave Ahly, the first from Morocco's Wydad while the second is from Tunisian side Esperance," El-Badry told reporters on Monday.

"I am not thinking of leaving Ahly now," he added.

There were no immediate reasons for the Ahly coach to reveal such offers since he is currently working well with team, having won the Egypt Super Cup title, is close to securing the Egyptian Premier League title for the second year in a row.

The Reds also reached the CAF Champions League final game under El-Badry.

Meanwhile, El-Badry hinted on the departure of the team's second choice goalie Ahmed Adel, confirming the stay of under fire goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy.

"I am discussing an offer for the departure of goalkeeper Ahmed Adel," El-Badry said.

"We have no intention to offload Ekramy,"

The 34-year-old Ekramy, who contributed to guiding Ahly to winning the domestic double (the League and Cup titles) last season, was recently criticised by both the club’s fans and the media for missing an easy save that caused a second goal in the CAF semi-finals game.
