After their 1-0 win over Wadi Degla on Tuesday night, Zamalek are just two wins away from lifting their 13th league title.
Despite the win, Carteron wasn’t convinced with his players’ performance and urges them not to be complacent.
“We took an important step today towards the league title and an important result, but the performance was not good,” Carteron told OnTime Sport TV.
“We missed a lot of chances and eventually allowed Degla to have chances to equalize.
“Since the last training camp, I have prepared everyone to participate, especially since we play a match every three days and suffer from stress. Each person who played today was very good.
“We haven’t won anything yet. We must win the next matches. This is the consistency we need throughout the season to win the title. We have not won anything yet,” he added.
Carteron then had a message to the Zamalek fans and the players.
“Continue your support, we have to work hard and be humble and respectful to all our opponents. As for the players, the good spirit between us and is the reason for our success and we need to continue doing that,” he continued.
Al Ahly, who currently sit second four points behind Zamalek, dropped two other points against Tala’a El-Gaish on Tuesday, giving the White Knights a big advantage in the title race.
The Frenchman was then asked if he thought the Reds’ result would give them more of a moral boost for their final games of the season.
“This draw makes us play more freely. Every match we played we knew that a draw could cost us the league title, but now we will play more freely,” he concluded.
