Pitso Mosimane Becomes First African Coach to win Back to Back CAF Super Cups

Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach, Pitso Mosimane has became the first African Coach to win back-to-back CAF Super Cups.


Mosimane has also become the first African Coach to win the CAF Super Cup three times.


Pitso Mosimane made these records following Al Ahly’s triumph over Raja Casablanca on Wednesday evening at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar.


Caf Confederation Cup defending champions Raja took the lead after 13 minutes after Yasser Ibrahim El Hanafi turned the ball into his own net.


A counter-attack by Raja saw Abdelilah Madkour breakthrough on the right before taking a shot that beat Mohamed Elshenawy in the Ahly goal. El Hanafi’s attempt to cut away the shot only ended in deflecting it into the net.


The reigning Caf Champions League winners woke from their slumber as they attacked in numbers to level matters but their efforts met strong resistance by Marc Wilmots’ side.


Hussein El Shahat came close with a shot from 20 yards out but that attempt was parried away by goalkeeper Anas Zniti.


With the Stade Mohamed V Casablanca giants looking destined to win, super-sub Taher Mohamed scored a last-gasp effort after he was teed up by Percy Tau.


Zniti had just made a fine save to deny Mohamed Magdy, while Tau picked the rebound, set up Mohamed who struck home from close range.


And during the kicks from the penalty mark, Al Ahly won 6-5 on penalties after Abdelilah Madkour skied his kick.
