CAF Interclubs Pitso Mosimane Happy With Players’ Performance As Ahly Won African Super Cup

Al Ahly won their seventh CAF Super Cup title beating RS Berkane on Friday. And coach Pitso Mosimane expressed his delight with regard to how his team responded to a lethargic first-half display to come out with all guns blazing in the second and win the African Super Cup with a 2-0 victory in front of a limited crowd of 7,000 fans at the Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Qatari capital Doha.

It was a difficult game. Berkane is a very good team. We played with our hearts. But we lost some balls in the first half.” Mosimane told beIN Sports in a pitch-side interview.

But in the second half we took possession and played the way we usually play. We get better when we have the ball. And that’s what happened in the second half.

“Berkane could have equalised. But we managed to score a second goal that killed the game.”

Ahly’s Super Cup triumph gives them a morale boost before they meet Tunisia’s Esperance in a mouthwatering two-legged clash in the African Champions League semis next month.

Mosimane is aware that Ahly fans have already turned their attention to the next targets.

From our next game, our fans will demand that we win the domestic league, African Champions League and all possible titles.” The South African coach added.
