Mosimane Reflects On Our Game Against Sundowns


Pitso Mosimane, Al Ahly’s football first team head coach, spoke following the team’s 1-0 defeat against Mamelodi Sundowns in the third fixture of the CAF Champions League group stage.

In his post-match press conference, Mosimane reflected on the game and talked about the importance of the upcoming period.

“Of course, we are very sad about the result. It’s a match that I didn’t want to lose. It’s part of football.These things happen in football.”

“I can’t blame the team. We had many opportunities to score. I always knew that if we had any threat it will come from counter attacks.”

“I congratulate Mamelodi Sundowns on winning today’s game. I think we have to qualify through the hardest way. We have to try and win in South Africa. We can do that.”

“I will always ask CAF to use VAR throughout the whole competition. The opponent’s goalkeeper used his hand to save the ball from outside of the box. Also, I believe Tau was onside when he scored.”

“However, we don’t blame the absence of VAR for the loss. We had many opportunities that we should’ve scored from.”

“We can’t escape the fact that we played two games in the CAF Champions League group stage without scoring.”
