Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has rued his side’s missed chances against AS Vita Club in match-day three of the Caf Champions League group stages over this past weekend.
The Red Eagles were forced to settle for a point in their third Group A clash after playing out to a 2-2 draw with the Congolese side at the Cairo International Stadium.
In his post-match media conference, Mosimane reflected on the game and the upcoming challenges Ahly face:
On AS Vita game
‘We missed several scoring chances in today’s game, but this is football. I have full confidence in my players that they will win the next game. Our current situation is hard, but we have to deal with that,’ Mosimane told his club’s official website.
On facing AS Vita Club in Congo
‘We will fight to defeat AS Vita Club in Congo in order to keep our chances alive to qualify for the next round. Today’s match was full of incidents, and I have never seen something like that. It was like a drama.’
On the game’s referee
‘I have no comments on the referee, but everyone saw what happened on the field.’
On missed chances
‘We lost two points today due to missing a lot of scoring opportunities. It is very disappointing, but this is football.’
On Wahid’s injury
‘Mahmoud Wahid was injured at the beginning of the game, so we had to play Ayman Ashraf as a left back.’
On upcoming challenges
‘I will support all the players after today’s draw. We need to defeat AS Vita Club at their home. Our players achieved many great things during the previous period, and they deserve our support.
‘We still have three games and we will fight to win in order to reach the quarter-finals.’
