Pitso: Nobody Wishes To Face Al Ahly

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has issued a stern warning to all teams in the CAF Champions League after his side qualified for the quarter-final stages of the competition.

The reigning Champions League winners’ 2-2 draw with Al Merrikh was enough to see Mosimane’s men progress to the Last 8 of the competition, finishing as runners-up in Group A.

By virtue of finishing second on the standings, Mosimane’s side will face any of the other group leaders in the quarter-finals, and the two-time winner has sent out a stern message to any potential opponents.

“We lost to Simba SC away from home, but we managed to win against AS Vita Club in DR Congo and we secured a draw in Sudan against Al Merrikh to qualify (for) the quarter-finals,” Mosimane told Al Ahly’s media department.

“All the teams that topped their groups don’t wish to face Al Ahly. We are a strong team and we won the competition on 9 occasions. Finally, we will continue our journey to defend our title,” he added.

Mosimane’s men, who will finish in second place regardless of their result against Simba in the last group match, will be looking for a strong finish in the group and to avenge their 1-0 defeat in the reverse encounter.
