Manuel Jose admits leaving Al-Ahly after violence in Port Said

The Portuguese coach is considering his options after Wednesday's riots and stated that safety conditions for football in the country are not ensured
Al-Ahly coach Manuel Jose has admitted he could leave the club as a result of the violent scenes which occurred in Port Said on Wednesday.

Violence broke out at the end of the match as thousands of Al-Masry fans flooded onto the pitch to attack Al-Ahly's supporters and players because of the bad blood between the two clubs.

Jose, who is in his second stint in charge of Al-Ahly, has guaranteed that his entire team is safe, but admitted he was a victim of Wednesday's clashes.

"I am fine, when the game was over I could not return to the locker room because of all the mess," he told SIC Noticias.

"I was kicked and punched, then I was taken outside the stadium. I saw several fans being given medical attention and many have died.

"Some of them died inside our locker room, where they had run to. Everyone is fine from our team."

Questioned about his future at the Egyptian champions, the Portuguese coach said: "Now I will have to think about my life. There are no conditions."
