Surprise .. the final of the African Champions League with a home and away system

Patrice Motsepe, President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), blew up a surprise about reversing their previous decision to hold the African Champions League final from one match and returning to play in the home and away system.

Motsebe said at the South African Forum of Editors in Parktown, Johannesburg, according to the seventh day, that CAF will change the decision it took in 2018 to hold the finals of the African Champions League and Confederation Cup on one match in one country, after the events that preceded the match between Al-Ahly and Moroccan Wydad in the final of the tournament in its latest version.

“The final match, which will be played in two matches on its home and abroad, will guarantee fairness to the competitors, stressing that the matter will not happen again starting from 2023,” the president of KAF added. Motsebe explained that former Al-Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane can lead the South African national team in the future.

Musimani left Al-Ahly training on June 13, after the management of the Red Castle decided to terminate the contract of the South African coach, after he spent a journey full of tournaments.

Motsebe said, “I hope that Mosimane will coach the South African national team, he is my favorite coach and I love him. He will always have a special place in my heart, and I will also ask the Motsepe Foundation to pay his salary in that case. He deserves the big salary he’s expected to get.” South African coach Pitso Mosimane, the former coach of Al-Ahly club, had criticized the Confederation of African Football (CAF) for the final of the African Champions League in the last edition, which was held in Morocco. Al-Ahly lost the Champions League final title in the final match against Wydad, 2-0, in the match that was held at the Mohamed V complex in Casablanca on May 30th.
