Mosimane said during today's press conference: "We have another match in the Club World Cup, which is a great confrontation for us as an African team, as well as for Al Hilal, the champions of Saudi Arabia and Asia, and I would like to show my respect to them because they are a distinguished competitor."
He added, "We have something to play for, and we respect the opponent, and our goal now in this competition is to win the bronze medal."
He explained that Al Hilal Saudi Arabia played a very special match against Chelsea, and could have gone to the penalty shootout, and even reached the Club World Cup final.
He continued, "Al-Ahly has a good history in this tournament.
We seek to do everything we have tomorrow against a distinguished competitor who has players from Portugal as well as from the English Premier League. "We are not worried about the Saudi Al Hilal match, we respect him as a competitor, and we also trust in ourselves and our history, and it will be an interesting Arab meeting," he added: I came here with circumstances that I will not talk about as much as my ambition and my players with me, and the ambition of the club, its officials and its fans to achieve something special, and at the same time I hope that we come here next year in better conditions to compete in the Club World Cup.”

He added, "I am also sad for Al-Ahly fans. I wished for us to win the title. In fact, this is not easy. We are trying.. It is not easy to talk about winning the Club World Cup. I look at Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool and other international clubs. It is possible Not to reach the World Cup in the first place .. and I am not looking for excuses .. I am here among the biggest teams in the world.”
