Mosimane: Sundowns gave me an opportunity to win

Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane says he remains forever connected to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mosimane left the Brazilians after nearly a decade with a raft of silverware, just under two years ago, to lead the Egyptian Premier League side,

He has since faced his former employers on four occasions in the CAF Champions League, losing twice in group stage games, while progressing past Sundowns in their 2021 quarter-final clash.

He didn't exactly receive a favourable welcome from the faithful Sundowns support back on home soil but insists the club will always be with him.

Mosimane said on Soccer Laduma: "You got to understand how many years I have with Sundowns coaching and playing, so I am Sundowns.

"I have a relationship with Sundowns, my family is Sundowns. I have people and players that I have a relationship with at Sundowns. There is so much history that has happened there, so whatever personal relationship is between me, and you know, it's not a secret.

"You know me, I stand my ground. I have an opinion. I respect but I don't want anybody to dim my light. If you dim my light, I come out.

"So that's me. Mamelodi Sundowns gave me an opportunity to win the Champions League.

"I would never be at Al Ahly if I was not at Sundowns and I would never win the Champions League if I didn't have the resources of Mamelodi Sundowns to buy players, like [Hristo] Stoichkov and all those others who have spent so much more money than me."
