Pitso On CAFCL Win Over Chiefs
Pitso Mosimane has reacted to beating Kaizer Chiefs in the CAF Champions League final and leading Al Ahly to their tenth CAFCL trophy.
The 56-year-old has guided Al Ahly to back-to-back CAF Champions League trophies after already lifting in 2020, when his side beat Zamalek 2-1 in the final.
This time around, the ‘Club of the Century’ defeated Chiefs to secure their 10th continental crown.
“We really needed this trophy. I know the team from my country also wanted their first star. But we wanted it more than them,” he told reporters.
“The tenth one was the target. It’s good for history, it’s good for our archives. How better to do it than with three goals.
“Yes, I understand that there was a red card but a red card is part of football. You should not be reckless, if you play in the cup final. You shouldn’t be emotional but this happens in football.
“But we deserve it, we won it. We’ve been scoring goals. We’ve scored in the semi-finals. We’ve scored all the way. Congrats to the team.
“Al Ahly deserve the tenth trophy to make history.”
