Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane credits Kaizer Chiefs as soldiers
Ahead of the CAF Champions League final against Amakhosi, Mosimane has labelled the Soweto giants as resilient soldiers. He told the South African Football Journalists Association as per SowetanLIVE:
“The rigidness of the midfield‚ the hard-working of Bernard Parker‚ the element of Samir Nurkovic and Leonardo Castro, and Erick Mathoho‚ their set-pieces. The rigidness of not giving much away. They don’t care if they have the ball or not. They can suffer in a match – no problem. They suffered in Morocco‚ they survived. They suffered – they got four – against Wydad in the neutral venue in the group stages‚ they survived. They got three at Simba‚ they survived.”
