Ibenge protected his most memorable mainland prize in Africa with Berkane in his most memorable season in control, this in the wake of losing the CAF Champions League in 2015 and the Confederation Cup in 2018.
In any case, he figured out how to get one over the line as the Botola Pro side beat Pirates 5-4 on punishments in Uyo, Nigeria on Friday night after the game completed 1-1 after extra-time.
"I lost two finals previously, one against Setif, one against Raja, with Vita Club and it would have been truly difficult for me to lose another," he said in the post-match public interview.
"So I'm glad for the club, for the group for my staff, for family, Morocco and Congolese individuals since they are watching me today and I think they are truly glad for each of the three."
The Congolese guide proceeded to concede that Pirates were maybe the better group on the day however implied that they were ready to endure and accept the game to punishments as they arranged completely for the situation.
"They have great players, truly play quick forward and they controlled the game as you said. In any case, we were more aggressive and we changed a smidgen in light of the fact that in the principal half we let them play as they need at half-time I transformed it and put more tension in midfield," Ibenge added.
"We made another square… we gave them less space and we realize that we can [create] a great deal of chances in corners and it's what we do, we got a punishment… from that point forward, I can say Pirates were great today however we have a decent mindset to dominate this match since we chipped away at punishments and we came here to play to the last whistle of the arbitrator. So we were truly focused on that and we won it."
Berkane, who have now come out on top for two Confederation Cup championships in three seasons will confront either Al Ahly or Wydad Atheltic Club in the CAF Super Cup last.
