By reaching his second CAF Champions League final, Pitso Mosimane helped his current team Al Ahly break a record which was set by his former team Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mosimane and his troops managed to pull off an impressive two-legged 5-1 win over Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca to book their spot in the CAF Champions League final.

En route to the final, the Red Devils scored a record-breaking 34 goals in the tournament - five of them coming under Mosimane’s reign, overtaking the previous record of 31 goals, which was ironically set by Mosimane’s Sundowns team, who managed to win the 2016 edition of the competition.

Meanwhile, Mosimane has also called for calm as he waits to find out who will be their final opponents between Zamalek and Raja Casablanca.

“We did not win the trophy yet. We still have a difficult match in the final and we will wait to know our opponent,” Mosimane told the club’s official website.

The second leg between Raja and Zamalek takes place on Sunday evening, with the Egyptians holding a slight 1-0 first leg advantage.
