Al Ahly lock horns with Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday afternoon in a crunch CAF Champions League Group Stages clash.
Why Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly chose Kaizer Chiefs village REVEALED!
“Thanks to Kaizer Chiefs, thanks to the chairman Kaizer Motaung for offering us the facilities.” Pitso Mosimane said as quoted by IdiskiTimes.
“We could not find any other facility in the country that has the pitch, that has area for the ice-baths, massages and the pool and the saunas. There is no facility in South Africa that has that. Naturena has those facilities.
“It was good for us to see because I hadn’t seen the facility myself and what an eye-opener to see there is team in Africa that has facilities like this, not just the pitch but the whole hospitality by Kaizer Chiefs, also the lounge.
“Al Ahly will tell you that it’s a high-level facility. It’s the best facility in Africa, one of the best two I’ve seen on the continent in my 20 years as a coach.”
We have a good relationship with Chiefs – Pitso
“There is a very good relationship outside football that Chiefs has handed over to Al Ahly.” Pitso Mosimane said as quoted by the same publication.
“On the pitch we were opponents in the CAF Champions League final last year, but off the pitch we’re not opponents and I feel humbled by Kaizer Chiefs.”
