Pitso: These People Were Swearing At My Mother

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane revealed he was emotional after hearing insults from supporters on the way to the stadium.

The Red Devils advanced to the CAF Champions League semi-finals on Saturday afternoon, after claiming a 1-1 draw at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

What should have been a welcoming return for the two-time Champions League-winning coach, Mosimane reveals he was subjected to insults by supporters while there team bus was also stopped.

"I remember the first time I came here with Mamelodi Sundowns to play against SuperSport United, I was emotional little bit emotional because I spent seven years at SuperSport United but we're professionals and this is a game of football," Mosimane said in a press conference, as per SABC.

"But I was little bit emotional only when I saw the placards outside and they stop the bus and all these people swearing at me, swearing at my mother," he said.

"I said to myself, what else I should have done for this team to get the respect? But it's football I understand and I know the person who did that. And I know the person who is behind that.

"Just bitter because I left, I had to move on with my life, there's more, I don't want to talk, the things that I've received before my match from South Africa, if I show you my phone, correspondence I've received, emails I've received, they just don't let me go," he revealed.
