Mamelodi Sundowns manager, Pitso Mosimane, believes that it’s far from over in spite of beating Zamalek in the home leg of CAF Champions League final.

Mosimane has made it very clear that it’s far from over and that Zamalek could turn the table in Alexandria although the South African team leads 3-0 by aggregate. In spite of the lead, Mosimane is nervous as he has the chance to become the first South African manager to win an African championship.

Mosimane said:”No doubt there will be pressure and hostility from the fans but we are ready for anything. I hear a lot of people saying it’s already in the bag for Sundowns but this is football and we must never forget that they have scored four at home in this very competition.

“It would be very foolish to consider ourselves champions without kicking a ball. We got the advantage that we needed at home but the last hurdle is on Sunday.

“With the backing of the crowd, we know that they will be coming at us from the onset but this will give us the perfect opportunity to catch them with our speed on the break” Mosimane concluded.

Zamalek are set to host Sundowns on Sunday at Borg El Arab stadium with the attendance of 86,000 thousand fans in the away leg.
