The journey is still long, says Mosimane after Cairo derby victory

Pitso Mosimane has urged the fans not to exaggerate with the celebrations following Al Ahly’s massive 5-3 victory over arch-rivals Zamalek in the Cairo derby.

The Red Devils ran riot against arch-rivals Zamalek at their backyard following a massive 5-3 victory, which put them top of the table.

The Reds found themselves 3-0 up after just 25 minutes, before adding extra two goals in the second-half while Zamalek’s late comeback wasn’t enough for them to get anything from the game.

The defeat was Zamalek’s first domestic defeat in 25 games since their 2-1 loss to Al Ahly back in April 2021, with Mosimane continuing his impressive record against the Whites.

Across eight different games against Zamalek, the South African won six while losing just once, snatching two CAF Champions League titles from the Whites.

Speaking on the game, Pitso said: “We need to calm down and not exaggerate with the celebrations. We didn’t win everything.

“Last season we beat Zamalek, but we didn’t win the league. It was a great game on the opponent’s ground, and we got the three points and scored five goals.

“We have a lot of work to do and we will focus on the positives. It is not easy to beat Zamalek by five goals. The journey is still long, and the league title must be won.

“Today was great with Al Ahly fans. They have given us support and confidence, and they deserve this result. We didn’t win the league, we just won a game.
