Al-Ahly coach of Egypt, South African Pitso Mosimane, confirmed that his team is ready to play the African Super match against Moroccan Raja, tomorrow, Wednesday, in the Qatari capital, Doha.
“The match is difficult, but Al-Ahly has great motives to win the title for the second time in a row,” Mosumiani said in a press conference today, explaining that the players have a continuous passion to win championships.
He added, “Since the plane landed, we felt the strength of our fans, and we received many welcome messages, and holding the match in Qatar gives the team an opportunity to interact with and see the fans.”
He explained: “Al-Ahly fans give us great motivation, and their presence behind the team means a lot to us, even when we played against Bayern Munich, Al Duhail and Palmeiras in the Club World Cup. Their presence in the stands at that time represented a great addition to the team, and he is the 12th player.”
And he added: “We had 9 players in the Arab Cup, and when we returned from such matches, there was no positive feeling, especially after losing the title to the players of the Egyptian, Moroccan and Tunisian teams, and we did not fully prepare after their participation yesterday only in training, I have not seen them for a while, only in Yesterday I saw them, and in general we will deal with the fait accompli.”
He continued: “Some people expect a lot from the team, because Al-Ahly is a good and big team with distinguished elements, in addition to great self-confidence, and therefore there will be no room to talk about excuses, as we trust in our abilities and our fans give us great motives to win the title.”
And he concluded: “When you take charge of training a team of the size and history of Al-Ahly, you cannot complain about pressure, at every moment you must deal with pressure and stress, and in general I am very happy with the support of the club’s fans, and I always work to get rid of these pressures, and I used to put the club’s interest first. Just looking to win.”
