Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane is a happy man with regards to the refereeing appointment for the CAF Champions League final against Wydad Casablanca
Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane couldn’t hide his delight after compatriot Victor Gomes was selected to officiate the CAF Champions League final against Wydad Casablanca.
The Red Devils reached the final after a convincing 6-2 win on aggregate over Algerian side ES Setif in the semi-finals.
Casablanca managed to overcome Angola’s Petro Atletico de Luanda with a 4-2 victory to book a spot in the final.
Now, CAF has revealed that South African referee Victor Gomes will officiate the clash, set to take place next Monday night. Mosimane sent words of praise to Gomes, having time to joke about their previously fractious relationship back in South Africa.
As reported by Sports Brief, the club has since responded to the rumours that the three-time CAF Champions League had been negotiating with them in secret.
Despite his success in North Africa, Mosimane has in recent times been a target for inexplicably disgruntled legends of the club.
