Mosimane – We Showed Character

Al Ahly Head Coach Pitso Mosimane has praised his team’s character after they finished third in the FIFA Club World Cup.

While Bayern beat Tigres 1-0 in the final, Ahly had to get through a penalty shoot-out against Palmeiras, after it ended goalless after 90 minutes.

“When you face Bayern Munich, things are not easy, and we must be modest, but now the situation is different. I thank the players and Mohamed El-Shennawy for saving the penalties and clinching the bronze medal,” Mosimane said the penalty shoot-out win.

“Next week we have to repeat this performance in the CAF Champions League and forget what we did here in the Club World Cup.”

โ€œI think we fought fiercely. Yes, we were not the strongest team in the tournament, but we showed character and fighting during our matches.”
