Pitso Mosimane, Al Ahly head coach, featured in the pre-match press conference of our CAF Super Cup match against Morocco’s Raja CA.

We are set to face Raja CA on Wednesday at 7:00 PM (Cairo Time) at Ahmed bin Ali Stadium.

“The CAF Super Cup is a final game and we have to respect it. 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 9 players who played in the FIFA Arab Cup and they were not in 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.”

“We only had one training session yesterday (after the return of the international players) and we do not have a training today because we 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.”
