Masandawana take on reigning champs Al Ahly in the principal leg of their CAF Champions League quarter-finals on Saturday, 15 May at 21:00 (SA time).
This is pretty much large for co-mentor Mokwena as he was earlier coached by Mosimane. He is confronting a man who showed him a large portion of what he thinks about instructing today.
He guided him strategically and actually on an effective excursion at Sundowns. Mosimane broadly won the CAF Champions League with Sundowns in 2016.
"Somebody that I for one have regard for as a result of the job that he played in my training vocation as mentor, as a pioneer and as a tutor and somebody I took in a great deal from," said Mokwena.
Mokwena is certain that his group can beat their previous mentor and take out the reigning champs! He accepts his side flourish under tension!
"We flourish with that pressing factor and we like that pressing factor and we anticipate doing all that we can so we get into the semi-finals," expressed Mokwena.
Mokwena is up for the test and accepts that the assumptions are on Red Devils of Egypt to win. They completed third at the new Club World Cup and are the pre-competition top choices.
Al Ahly confronted The Brazilians at similar stage in the last two competitions.
A year ago Sundowns were taken out in the wake of losing the tie (3-1) yet in 2019 they destroyed Al Ahly 5-1 on total.
"They are the reigning champs, and they have the strain to win the prize and they have the strain to get into the semi-finals. Along these lines, for us it is a serious draw against an excellent side with an awesome mentor, somebody we have a great deal of regard for," added Mokwena.
For once South Africans will root against Mosimane!
