CAIRO, 7 February 2021: Al-Ahly coach Pitso Musimane believes that it is natural for his team and their fans to look forward to more victories, even if the rival Bayern Munich is European champion.
"It is natural for Al-Ahly and their fans to look forward to more victories," Mosimani said at the press conference for the FIFA Club World Cup semi-final.
"We found ourselves in this situation by achieving victories, by winning the African Champions League and over Al Duhail in the first round of the tournament," he added.
He stressed, "We will continue this distinguished journey."
"Certainly, Bayern's match is important and historic, but I don't think it will be the most important match in Al-Ahly's history," he stressed.

Regarding Bayern, he said: "We watched their last match. They made mistakes. All teams have strengths and weaknesses. We have also made mistakes against Al Duhail. Perhaps we will make mistakes against Bayern as well, and also when we return to the league in Egypt."
"Football is about correcting mistakes until the coach or player retires. This is the essence of football. We feel humble enough to correct those mistakes. Making mistakes does not mean that we are bad," he stressed.
"The most important thing is to accept mistakes and work to fix them. We cannot satisfy everyone," he stressed.
"But as a team, we won the treble, and we are participating in the Club World Cup, we won the first match and we are in the semi-finals. No club in Africa achieved what we did, so we are a good team," he said.
Al-Ahly will face Bayern Munich in Doha on Monday, in the semi-final of the Club World Cup, after the Reds defeated Al-Duhail of Qat
