Pitso Targets Another Super Cup

Ahead of this evening’s CAF Super Cup final between Al Ahly and Raja Casablanca, Pitso Mosimane says they have good memories of winning the cup last year, and would like to repeat the success.

The two meet this evening in Qatar for the annual competition between the winners of the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup.

Mosimane won the Super Cup last year with Al Ahly, while he also lifted the trophy when at Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mosimane says it has been nice to interact with fans in Qatar, and he hopes they will be there to support his team tonight.

“The CAF Super Cup is a final game and we have to respect it,” Mosimane was quoted as saying by the club’s website.

“We have good memories from that game last year. We have won it last year and we believe we can win it again.”

“Whenever we land here, we feel welcomed and a little bit ahead. It is always a good opportunity to interact with our fans here in Qatar.

“I hope they come to see us, just as they did when we faced Bayern Munich, Palmeiras, RS Berkane, and Al Duhail. They believe in us, support us and give us motivation.”

“I have nine players who played in the FIFA Arab Cup and they were not in a good feeling when they came back. Ali Maaloul lost the final, Badr Benoun lost the semi-final and the same happened for the Egyptian national team players.

“We have to understand that we have 9 starters in the team and I saw them only yesterday, at the time that I have a match tomorrow.”

“It is tough for us, but it is our life. The players understand the principles and philosophy of how we play. We are a big team, and we will do well.”

“When you coach a team like Al Ahly, you can never complain about stress or you should not be here. You are coaching Al Ahly, the biggest team in the continent.”

“When Mohamed Sherif rejoined the team, I told him that we are waiting for you to score tomorrow. We believe in him. He was the team’s top scorer last year and he is the top striker of the team.”
