"Our manager loves playing beautiful football. His history and his tactics show the type of manager he is."

Sami Komsan, the assistant coach to the former Sundowns boss echoed the sentiments and revealed the Club of the Century are now fully focused on securing the CAF Champions League.

"Despite the many absences within the side, we showed real character in the match as we dominated the game from start to the end," Komsan said in the post-match press conference.

"Mosimane fulfilled his dream of coaching Al Ahly and he knows the value of the club. He always talks with the players to deliver his tactics.

"We are doing our best to arrive to Morocco in perfect shape. We are determined to win the CAF Champions League title."
