Pitso On CAF CL: Don’t Play There, It Is For Big Boys

Pitso Mosimane Has Shared His Opinion On How Hard It is To Compete Domestically While In The CAF CL

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 05, 2018 08:30 AM

Pitso Mosimane has made an example of the competition on the African continent, saying that after going to finals, not many teams have been successful domestically.

Mamelodi Sundowns are faced with a busy domestic schedule, while they also prepare to get their Champions League campaign underway next month.

Speaking to the media, Mosimane said that not many teams are successful domestically when they are taking part in continental competitions, adding that Sundowns, Esperance de Tunis and Al Ahly are the only teams in the CAF Champions League who are also on top of their respective domestic league. 

“If you check the Champions League, it is unbelievable, if you look at the history, where Zesco went after playing us; they went to lose the league. Zamalek, after that, they are not there. SuperSport went to the final, not yet there,” Mosimane told the media.

“Orlando Pirates, did the CAF Confederations Cup final, number 11 on the log after, we can mention so many casualties are there.

“Look at Al Ahly, top of the log, Esperance de Tunis, top of the log, Mamelodi Sundowns, top of the log, three teams in Africa… so, it is big and sometimes because (of) home, we don’t care about the continent. So that’s when you say you are really competing at the highest ever level, okay you can lose the Telkom, you can lose the Nedbank, it is okay, but we also want to make history, play champions league every year, four years in a row, unbelievable and you know what is the passport to play Champions League, you are number one or number two. 

“(Bidvest) Wits played Champions league last year, you know where they are. We can mention a lot. Don’t play there, it is for big boys, otherwise stay domestic,” he added.

Dia boya mo! After Mr Motsepe bought Sundowns, we went thruogh hell. I remember our president attending every game, only to return home disappointed. We changed coaches after coaches, buying players left/right/centre..but all bear no results! We were Chiefs daily bread, always lose every final against Chiefs. Today, Mr Motsepe is in the PROMISE LAND. I just wish players can reward him with another CAFCL trophy.

@scoreman99 : It can't be, I was the one who dismissed all those hooligans who assaulted us at Dobsnville stadium. I will never chase a coach I am passionate about this game. Remember it was under Neeskens when we walloped Powerlines 24-0. Don't forget.

Stop being stupid Pitso, Pirates played CCL in 2013/2014. They were no:11 on the log in 2017. How do u link these two. U seem to forget that Sundowns won the league through backdoors. u were out, not once but twice, teams were disqualified and u think u worked. u did 0

We have been saying the CCL is not for softies. Only Downs and Bucs can compete there, the rest must stay at home.

Bora Wedawana kby Apr 05, 2018 10:29 AM @SowetoBOY Respect Downs supporters Wena Masaka because You know deep Down your heart that Sundowns is much successful than your team. Your team was established in 1937 n Downs in 1970 but kanjalo you have less cups than Zebbies and Downs even Supersport nxa....I dont give a danm about thugs who nearly killed Neeskens and after all why should i respect fans i hardly see and for me to see them or notice them i have to go to stadium and or log in to socila media or read that the will be given a Free entrance to enter stadium.
