Mosimane's men will be going into the game with a lot of expectations as they aim to win their 10th Champions League glory, unlike Kaizer Chiefs who will take part in their first-ever final.
McCarthy, who won two league titles in his five-year stint with the Amakhosi, is fully confident in the players even though he admitted they're not favorites.
“They must win and bring back the star and celebrate with us,” McCarthy told Goal.
“Yes, obviously they are the underdogs. But I would just like to wish them all the best. They should go out there and give their best, give everything they have and we shall see.
“I am confident and I am in the mood. I just want to see the referee blow the final whistle.
“They must go there and do it for the Khosi nation [Chiefs supporters], for Bra K [Kaizer Motaung senior] and the country,” he concluded.
Kaizer Chiefs had to overcome a very strong Wydad Casablanca in the semifinals side in order to reach the final. The Moroccan side dominated both games but weren't clinical enough to come back from their shocking 1-0 defeat in the first leg.
