The Confederation of African Football (CAF) celebrated Al-Ahly’s coronation at Club Century in Africa.
Kave posted a video through his official accounts on social media to the most beautiful moments of Al-Ahly in the African Championships and the moment Saleh Salim, the historical president of the club, received the Horn of Africa Club award in Johannesburg.
Kafe commented on the video, saying: “Today it has been 20 years since Al-Ahly crowned Club of the Century … a happy memory.”
Al-Ahly topped the 20th-century club time with 40 points, then Zamalek came second with 37 points, Ghanaian Ashanti Kotoko came third and Cameroonian Yaounde ranked fourth with 34 points each.
It is noteworthy that the award has aroused intense controversy so far despite the passage of 20 years since Al-Ahly was crowned with it, where Zamalek confirms that he was entitled to crown him with nine titles, compared to seven for the red, and the White Department went to the International Sports Court to preserve the rights of the club.
Today marks 20 years ago @AlAhly was crowned team of the century 👑
Happy Anniversary 🥳 pic.twitter.com/kgm5TqNKV0
