Pitso Mosimane: How things could have turned out very differently for former Mamelodi Sundowns coach

 Just four months into his tenure at Chloorkop, the former Bafana Bafana coach was under immense pressure and seemingly on the way out

On Friday night, former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane added to his already legendary status by guiding Al Ahly to a ninth Caf Champions League crown with a 2-1 win over Cairo rivals Zamalek.

It was their first win in the tournament since 2013 when they beat Orlando Pirates. Since then, Al Ahly have lost two finals - against Esperance Tunis and Wydad Casablanca - which meant Mosimane was under pressure to ensure the club didn't lose a third successive final.

In a thrilling match, the Red Devils pulled through thanks to an 86th minute winner from Mohamed Kafsha; such are the fine lines between glory and despair.
