Al Ahly football committee accepted the resignation of head coach Hossam El-Badry after the team lost to Kampala City 2-0 in the second fixture of the CAF Champions League Group Stages.

He did not give reasons as to why he resigned, noting that the management of the club will issue a statement.

"The club will hold a meeting tomorrow (Wednesday) to discuss the team's future plans".

El-Badry then returned to the Red Castle in the summer of 2012 to succeed the Portuguese coach but left again after one year to take charge of Libya's Ahly Tripoli. Ibrahim Saddam Juma scored in the 74 minute, before Thomas Awany wrapped things up with a goal from the penalty spot. The 1-0 victory, which was secured by a stunning goal from Felix Badenhorst, leaves them top of the group on four points.

Group winners and runners-up advance to the quarter-finals of a competition offering a $2.5 million (2.1 mn euros) first prize and a place in the 2018 FIFA Club World Cup.

In the other Group A match, Tunisian giants Esperance walloped Rollers 4-1 in Rades, inspired by a brace from Anice Badri.

Tuesday's loss to KCCA means the eight-time African champions are bottom of their group with just a point from two matches so far, having drawn with Tunisia's Esperance in their opening encounter.

In Group B there were away wins for both TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Mouloudia Alger of Algeria.

In Group C defending champions Wydad Casablanca of Morocco netted twice within six minutes of kick-off to set up a 3-0 home win over Port of Togo.

Felix Badenhorst secured a 1-0 win for Mbabane Swallows over Primeiro de Agosto, and ES Setif suffered a 1-0 defeat to Algerian rival MC Alger thanks to an 89th-minute victor from Amir Karaoui.

Swallows have four points, former champions Etoile Sahel of Tunisia three and Zesco United of Zambia and Primeiro one each.
