Ahly record signing lauds Pitso influence

Pitso Mosimane

Al Ahly record signing Hussein El Shahat has credited Pitso Mosimane for their incredible goals scored since his arrival from Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Red Devils dismantled Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca in a resounding 5-1 aggregate score, with El Shahat stealing the show in the second-leg at the Cairo International Stadium.

While the Aliou Dieng midfield masterclass rightfully earned the Mali international the man of the match, it was their record signing, who joined from Al Ain in a 90-million Egyptian pounds (R95m) deal that scored the goal of the tie.

The 28-year-old winger turned his marker inside out and left him on his backside before slotting home to make it 2-0 in the eventual 3-1 second-leg victory.

"All of the goals we scored were the work of Pitso Mosimane, this guy has worked hard from day one," he said about the incredible strike before Mosimane called for calm once more.

"We did not win the trophy yet. We still have a difficult match in the final and we will wait to know our opponent," the former Sundowns boss said after reaching his second African Champions League final.

"We played both games against Wydad well but our performance in Morocco was better. We didn't get to the level I want, especially with our passing."

The Club of the Century will now face either Raja Casablanca or Zamalek in the final of Africa's elite club competition scheduled for 11 November.
