    However, Mokwena said while he agrees with Mosimane’s sentiments, only Sundowns want to face the nine-time CAF Champions League winners in the knockout stages.

    “Coach Pitso is right‚ who wants to play the defending champions except Mamelodi Sundowns?” asked Mokwena in Thursday’s press conference.

    “We welcome that [statement that nobody wants to face Al Ahly] because that’s the competition.

    “Once you get to the last eight and to the last four‚ you get to play anybody and you get to play against the best teams,” he explained.

    Then there was a last punch by Mokwena to Mosimane, saying if the astute coach was really honest to himself, he’d certainly admit that he doesn’t want to play Sundowns.

    “But if coach Pitso is really honest‚ I don’t think he wants to play against Sundowns,” added Mokwena.

    The last time Sundowns and Al Ahly faced each other in the CAF Champions League, Mosimane was still the head coach at the Tshwane giants, and he masterminded a 5-0 win over the Red Devils in Tshwane on his way to lifting the coveted trophy.
