Men’s team of Al Ahly Cairo followed the footsteps of its female colleagues to win the 2019 African Volleyball Club Championship.

 

The most-titled Egyptian club Al Ahly Cairo (29 national championships) cruised to a straight-set victory over compatriots Smouha SC in the finals of the 2019 African Club Championship, partially 25-17, 25-23, 25-19. Thus, the side from the Egyptian capital won the continental trophy for the 14th time (the nearest follower on the winner's list is Tunisian CF Sfaxien with six titles). This African Club Championship trophy, third in a row for Al Ahly, came in front of their own crowd. Their dominance most clearly reflected in the fact that they did not suffer a single loss during an entire tournament: a 7-0 record.

Two weeks ago, Al Ahly got another African volleyball club champions as women’s team lifted the trophy as well.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
