“The final against Kaizer Chiefs was difficult, but we rose up to the occasion, winning was all that’s in our mind.
“We dedicate the win to our fans, they deserve so much more and we will always be trying to make them happy,” he added.
In addition, Mohamed Sherif ended this season’s CAF Champions League as top scorer with 6 goals in 13 appearances.
