Back-to-back CAF Champions League winning coach Pitso Mosimane has reflected on his journey in the competition, revealing his side’s toughest opponents.

Mosimane’s Al Ahly claimed their 10th Champions League title at the Mohammed V Stadium in Morocco after sweeping aside Kaizer Chiefs 3-0 on the night, in what was a dominant display.

By winning the title, Mosimane moved into a league of his own, becoming the first African coach to win the title on three different occasions. He is also now just one trophy away from equalling the record set by former Al Ahly coach Manuel Jose, who won it four times with the Egyptians.

Reflecting on a tough Champions League campaign, Mosimane opened up on the toughest sides he has faced this season, reserving special mention for his former side, Mamelodi Sundowns.

“[The] Simba game was very difficult, playing against them is exhausting. Al-Merrikh and Sundowns matches were very difficult too,” Mosimane told Al Nahar TV channel.

“When we played against Bayern Munich, the best team in the world, people thought we were invincible, our loss against Simba returned us to reality, it was the shock we needed to wake up.

“The hardest thing to face as a coach is a random team, which happens a lot with us,” he added.

Mosimane and his side will enjoy a 48-hour break to soak in their historic achievement, before they turn their attention to the Egyptian Premier League where they trail rivals Zamalek by 10 points although the Red Eagles have four games in hand.
