Three consecutive victories in a row?? Take a Look at What Pitso Had to Say About the CAF CL Crown.
Pitso is optimistic about winning the Champions League for the third year in a row.
Pitso Mosimane has expressed his self-assurance that Al Ahly will successfully defend their CAF Champions League title for a third straight year.
Ten-times the standard Egyptian giants Al Ahly will take on Moroccan rivals Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League final the following week on Monday. The match will take place in Morocco and will be Al Ahly's third consecutive appearance in the title match.
Pitso Mosimane, the South African coach of the Red Devils, criticized his team's injury issues prior to the showpiece final, which have resulted in a number of important characters being ruled out of participation, but he vowed that his team will be ready for the game.
Earlier this week, he was quoted on the club's website as saying, "We have a lot of injuries now." "Those that participated in the game [on Saturday] are the only players who are currently available for the championship match. During the FIFA Club World Cup, we were faced with a similar circumstance, and we were able to find a way to successfully navigate it."
The former Mamelodi Sundowns coach was questioned further on the situation earlier this week with specific reference to his side's fixture congestion. He stated that the club's pursuit of glory presents them with a number of challenges, and that the fixture congestion is just one more obstacle to overcome.
According to KingFut, Mosimane also stated that there was no issue with playing once every three days. "This has been the case throughout the history of Sundowns, and it is to be expected given that we are participating in the Champions League.
"It is better for me to play once every three days and have a chance to fight for the Champions League than it is for me to play once every five days in one event and be eliminated from another." We are committed to doing everything in our power to win the CAF Champions League.
"We are accustomed to performing under intense pressure since we have previously competed when key international players were missing from the team. In England, they play in a league with twenty clubs and two cups, but when the regular season is over, the players take a break for the offseason and then begin preseason play. This is not the case in Egypt.
"Why do you believe there are so many people getting hurt here? Hamdy Fathi, [Amr] El-Sulya, [Mohamed] Abdelmonem, Yasser [Ibrahim], [Aliou] Dieng, and even [Mohamed] El-Shenawy are all names that have been mentioned. All of these ailments affect the muscles, and they are brought on by the close proximity of the fittings with no intervals in between."
"There is no doubt in my mind that we will emerge victorious in the CAF Champions League. We have been champions for the past ten times altogether, including the last two years in a row. Why not try to win the eleventh title instead? "In conclusion, he said.
Should Mosimane be successful in leading Ahly to victory over Wydad Casablanca the following week, the 57-year-old will become the first coach in history to win three consecutive Champions League titles. Prior to this season's triumph, Mosimane was one of just five coaches who had won the tournament twice in a row.
