Dolly wishes Mosimane luck for Champions League final


Former Mamelodi Sundowns winger Keagan Dolly has wished his former coach Pitso ‘Jingles’ Mosimane well at his new club Al Ahly in Egypt.

Mosimane joined the Egyptian giants shortly after winning his third consecutive league title with the Tshwane-based side in South Africa. In his first few weeks at the club, he completed what coach Rene Weiler had started and won the Egyptian Premier League.  

Mosimane has also guided the African Club of the Century to the CAF Champions League final against local rivals Zamalek.

The final is scheduled for the 27th of November 2020 at the Cairo International Stadium. One of the players who knows how it feels to play in the final of the CAF Champions League is one Keagan Dolly having won the continental competition with Sundowns back in 2016.

Dolly was under the mentorship of the same Mosimane before moving to former French champions Montpellier HSC in January 2017.

The 27-year-old was part of the feared and ruthless CBD (Leonardo Castro, Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly) that terrorised teams both in the local and continental scene.

“Yeah obviously it’s always great to see someone from South Africa doing well, especially someone you have worked with in the past going on to do greater things. He has always been very ambitious, you could see from the team performances during the time I was there, we always wanted to win because of the kind of person he is, so from me I just want to wish him all the best going to the final and he must just keep representing South Africa well,” said Dolly.

Meanwhile, Sundowns club president, Patrice Motsepe, is running for the CAF presidential elections next year and the Dolly also wished him luck on his campaign for the hot seat.

“Like I said it’s always great to see South Africans do great things, it will always open doors for more South Africans. I believe we are a country full of talented people and I believe with people like Patrice Motsepe going for such nominations and coach Pitso Mosimane moving to Al Ahly it will give hope to others that anything is possible,” he concluded.
