The African Football League semifinal match between Al Ahly and his previous employers takes place in Pretoria on Sunday.
South African star Percy Tau is guiding the team.
Tau has been playing well for the Egyptian powerhouses, and during the first-leg match at Loftus Versfeld Stadium, he should be able to put his in-depth understanding of Mzansi football to use.
The 29-year-old Bafana player is among the group that departed Cairo, Pretoria, on Thursday afternoon, according to Al Ahly. The group left a few hours earlier that day after the players had relaxed at El Tetsh.
Another noteworthy addition to the team, according to FilGoal.com, is Anthony Modest, a former striker for Borussia Dortmund.
Imam Ashour, Amr Al-Soulia, and Karim Fouad have been left out owing to injury and other reasons.
On November 1, 2023, in Cairo, the CAF Champions League champions will host the landlords of the DStv Premiership.
In the quarterfinal, Al Ahly defeated Simba from Tanzania on the away goal rule following a three-all draw, while Sundowns defeated Petro de Luanda 2-0 overall.
After Al Ahly advanced to the first-ever top continental league’s round of four, coach Marcel Koller has since expressed his satisfaction.
