Although we felt the pressure as we were joining the Club of the Century, we knew that we were sent to Cairo for a reason.

That reason was to deliver. Our first mission was to complete the job of obtaining the CAF Champions League title.

With little time and pressure, we, together with the rest of the team, fulfilled the mandate and caught the big fish in the Nile River. We delivered.

We were then mandated to bring the Egypt Cup back home and with a strong team. Mandate was fulfilled.

The journey continued and saw Al Ahly being placed on a world stage at the FIFA Club World Cup.

We put our suits on and set off to Abu Dhabi to represent our continent.

The remainder of the CAF Champions League tournament proved to be very challenging and although we encountered some bruises and scabs along the way, we worked our way into the finals.

Although the mandate was not fulfilled, our supporters made us feel like champions.

We were down, but they uplifted our spirits and delivered. A common theme throughout our journey was challenging the status quo and placing our team amongst the world’s best.

For the first time in Al Ahly history, the team was led to the CAF Champions League final three times in a row by a Sub-Saharan African technical team.

Nevertheless, this team delivered all of these victories within a period of 20 months.

I would like to thank Captain Bebo immensely for placing his trust and belief in me and my South African technical team.
