For the ‘brave’ endeavours to turnaround their mission, the crew got twofold rewards from club president Mahmoud El Khatib and after the game, Mosimane conceded they were sure of the turnaround.
“We forced our character and style from the start of the match,” he said after the game.
“I was sure about our capacity to win since Al Ahly have players with a significant degree of skill, experience and incredible abilities that empower them to defeat difficulty.
“I’m not saying this since we won today by three away from home however I said that after the past match between us, regardless of a two-objective tie.
“We confronted troublesome conditions today, from the temperature and high moistness and counterfeit turf, yet we in Al-Ahly are not searching for reasons and we are playing to win, so we entered the match just for triumph, which was accomplished eventually.”
The Club of the Century are currently second in Group A with seven focuses, three focuses behind pioneers Simba SC – who they will have in Cairo after venturing out to Sudan to confront Al Merrikh one month from now.
