Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has wished his fans a wonderful Africa Day and penned a beautiful message on social media.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns and Bafana Bafana coach says even though the African continent has different cultures, love should unite the masses.
Mosimane dropped a video on his Twitter and Instagram accounts, saying all the children of the continent deserve a good day.
The two-time CAF Champions League winner is still in high spirits after leading his team to the semi-finals of the continental tournament, overcoming his former employer, Masandawana. Mosimane wrote.
“From Cape to Cairo, culture may separate us but we are all children of the African soul. Happy Africa Day!”
Looking at the reactions, many have also expressed solidarity with the coach after he was insulted by angry Sundowns fans on Saturday afternoon.
"Al Ahly fans love you Pitso, they want you to win all the championships and the Club World Cup.”
“We are all standing together with you Pitso. We are all waiting for the Super African title. We are supporting you more than you really imagine. Don't let us down Pitso.”
“We will always support you and love you, you have put us the smile [sic] and we are still happy because of you.”
“Can we get someone like you on Orlando Pirates, we are dying kubi.”
“You can say that again Ntate Mosimane. Africa my land. My pride. My heritage. My confidence. My self-esteem.”
“My personal apology coach for what those Sundowns did on Saturday. It was not only an embarrassment for them but for all us football-loving South Africans.”
“Thanks and I want to take this opportunity to apologise for what happened to you, we the Sundowns supporters we will always love you.”
“Bra Pitso, we look up to you my brother! You are an inspiration. Zikhonkotha ehambayo, emileyo ziyayichamela....”
Meanwhile, Briefly News ran a story on Mosimane's men who were going through a rough patch as they recently registered a 1-1 draw against Zamalek.
The Red Devils netted in the 72nd minute through second-half substitute Salah Mohsen, who latched onto Amr El-Sulya's pass before rounding goalkeeper Awad to fire into the back of the net.
However, Mosimane’s troops were denied the lead after 11 minutes as the White Knights scored courtesy of Ferjani Sassi's strike.
Just before their eagerly-anticipated clash against his former club Sundowns two weeks ago in Cairo, Mosimane and his men had been looking for a motivating result.
