CAF : Pitso Mosimane delighted with a win over Nigerian side Enyimba
Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane celebrated his new four-year contract with Sundowns with a win over Enyimba
Sundowns 2-1 victory over Enyimba in the CAF Champions League on Wednesday night proofed yet again that they are in the competition to compete and not add nubers.
It was Sundowns second win in the CAF campaign after beating Algerian side ES Setif 2- 0 in Algeria.
CAF later expunged the win from Sundowns records after the north African side were disqualified from the competition for crowd violence, it means the Chloorkop side have claimed two morale-boosting wins against former champions of the continent.
Sundowns are second on the log behind Zamalek and in pole position for a semi-final spot
“The Champions League, for our country, means to take away the phobia of facing an Enyimba with the two stars on top of the badge. Setif had stars on their badge also and we won,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
“Being patriotic, as a South African, it’s always good to beat a Nigerian team because there is always that talk about Bafana Bafana and the Super Eagles [Nigeria national team] and that South African teams are not being able to beat Nigerian teams. So that talk must stop at this point in time.”
Next up for Sundowns is a trip to Zamalek on July 17.
“We are going now to the Egyptians [Zamalek] and if we can get our concentration right like we did in Setif, we can win,” Mosimane says. “I think we can also go to Enyimba and win. I’m not being cocky, I’m being honest.”
