The game is bigger than the four of us â€“ Pitso Mosimane
â€œAt our level, with our experience, it is not about outsmarting Mamelodi Sundownsâ€™ coaches. The game is way bigger than the four of us.â€ â€“ Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane said.
â€œIt is a game for Al Ahly, and it is a game for Sundowns; it has nothing to do with us as coaches. We are just directing the teams on the game, supporting the players.
â€œFor me, where I am in my career, there is nothing for me to be competing or trying to outsmart Manqoba, Rulani or Steve. I have respect for them and Mamelodi Sundowns. I am not in that space of outsmarting to feel better about myself.
â€œYou have to imagine what is Al Ahly, itâ€™s the biggest club in the continent. And I am not talking about when it was established, in terms of history. I am talking about also the titles and support base.
â€œName me one team in the continent that has 70 million people looking at you every day, every match.â€
