Pitso Announces Squad For Chiefs’ CAFCL Final
Pitso Mosimane has announced a very strong 28-man squad to face Kaizer Chiefs in the CAF Champions League final.
Al Ahly will go into a bio bubble upon their arrival in Casablanca, Morocco, after all players tested negative for Covid-19 ahead of the trip, the club confirmed.
The ‘Club of the Century’ enter the final as defending champions and on the back of a 11-match unbeaten run.
Mosimane has announced the squad on Tuesday ahead of Saturday’s final, with all his star players such as in-form goal scorer Mohamed Sherif and left-back Ali Maaloul being part of the selection.
