Al Ahly Coach Pitso Mosimane reaction after Simba SC defeat
Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane commented on our 1-0 loss against Simba SC in match day2 of the CAF Champions League group stage.
The Red Devils came up against the Msimbazi giants at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium with Caf allowing 30,000 fans to attend the match and by Tuesday morning, all 30, 000 tickets had already been sold out.
Simba then beat the African champions 1-0, the first defeat for coach Mosimane by an African team since he joined the Egyptian side
Speaking after the game, Mosimane has explained his unhappiness at the Caf decision to allow fans to attend the Group A fixture saying whatever happened in the game has never happened in any place in the world.
“We still have four remaining games in the group stage, and we will fight to reach the next round.”
“We aimed to dominate the possession in today’s game, but we missed several chances in the first half, and in these games, we have to take all of our chances.”
“We have to be professional after any loss, but the game could be held in better circumstances. I am a professional coach and I have no comments on the fans’ attendance as it was the CAF’s decision, but what happened today did not happen in any place in the world.” Mosimane told the club’s official website.
