Al Ahly have resolved to hold training sessions behind closed doors ahead of their meeting with Esperance on Saturday.
The CAF Champions League defending champions host the Tunisians in the semi-final second leg match in Cairo.
The Egyptian club has confirmed on its website that the first team will train behind closed doors for 48 hours.
The website says coach Pitso Mosimane stressed to Director of Football, Sayed Abdelhafiz, the importance of having a closed training camp.
Abdelhafiz has also confirmed that all first team players have been banned from granting the media interviews “as the team is in a decisive phase of the season.”
The winner between Al Ahly and Esperance will date either Kaizer Chiefs from South Africa or Wydad Casablanca of Morocco in the final.
Chiefs won 1-0 away in Morocco on Saturday evening to boost their chances of clinching a final berth.
Meanwhile, Al Ahly’s delegation returned to Cairo from Tunisia on Sunday.
Al Ahly beat Esperance 1-0 on Saturday at Hammadi Agrebi Olympic Stadium in the first leg of the semifinal.
