Pitso Mosimane, the head coach of Al Ahly, praised his countryman and CAF Champions League final referee Victor Gomes.

The Reds advanced to the final after a 6-2 aggregate victory over ES Setif of Algeria in the semi-finals.

Wydad Casablanca, on the other side, defeated Petro Atletico de Luanda of Angola 4-2 to secure a place in the final.

Al Ahly will be looking for their third title in a row, while Wydad will be looking for their first Champions League trophy since 2017.

Wydad will have an advantage in the final because they will be able to play at home because CAF has chosen the Mohammed V Stadium as the hosting location.

CAF announced ahead of the final that South African referee Victor Gomes will oversee the match, which will take place on Monday, May 30. 

Mosimane praised his countryman six days before the anticipated match, believing him to be the best referee on the dark continent. 

Mosimane wrote, "How I used to criticize Victor Gomes, at my humble pie long time ago, now I am his biggest admirer and he knows it." 

"I treat him with the respect he deserves, and he is currently the continent's No. 1 referee." 

I just completed watching Wydad's match vs A Petro Luyanda. The way he handled the game, the players, and the dugouts. He also oversaw Senegal's match against Egypt.

Can we bestow the title of Ikhamanga on him? Zakhele Siwela should be included."
