The former Mamlodi Sandons technician is already dreaming of a date with European champions that could be held in South Africa.
Al-Ahly’s coach Patsu Mossmana wants to avoid Chelsea in the first round of the 2021 FIFA Club World Cup because he wants to meet the Premier League giants in the final.
The Cairo giants will return to the World Cup in December after winning the African Championship for the 10th time.
Chelsea will represent Europe in this year’s edition of the Club World Cup, while Auckland City will carry the Oceania Football Confederation flag from New Zealand.
Participants from Cambodia, the Asian Football Confederation and CONCACAF have yet to be confirmed.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the Japanese team in the first game. Hopefully we’ll avoid Chelsea. Then we’ll meet the South or Central American team and Chelsea in the final. Sweden Live.
With Japan relinquishing the right to host the tournament due to the Cove 19 sanctions, South Africa has raised its hand to compete.
If FIFA approves of South Africa’s interest, it could potentially see Premier Soccer League Mamlodi Sundowns automatically qualify for the Club World Cup in order to secure a place for the hosts’ National League winners.
If Moseman’s dream of meeting Chelsea in the final comes true, it would be best for him to make room in his own country.
In addition, if Moseman stays as coach until December, this will be his third participation in the FIFA Club World Cup.
He first went there in 2016 with Mamlodi Sundowns, before taking part earlier this year, where he led Al-Ahly to a bronze medal.
In this edition, Al-Ahly met then-European champions Bayern Munich in the semi-finals and lost 2-0.
Mosimane admits how nervous he is before every match.
“I get nervous before every game, even in a friendly,” Moseman added.
“It’s just a matter of knowing how it will come out and who is going to score, what kind of goal we are going to score, can we score a goal that we worked on? So, yes, I’m nervous. I don’t think there is a coach who is not nervous before the game.
“Otherwise, it means you know you’re going to win. All the games I’ve played in the SA or here in Egypt in the Premier League, you’re not sure you’re going to win.
