Two Robert Lewandowski goals sent them to a contest for the third place against Brazilian side Palmeiras, one that saw them win over penalties after a 0-0 draw, repeating the feat for the first time since 2006.

The bronze medal came under manager Mosimane, who has led them to their first Champions League glory since 2013, achieving the treble for Al Ahly in the challenging 2019-2020 season.

The 56-year-old was showered with encouragement from his football association on Friday, SAFA president Danny Jordaan said: ‘’We are proud of what Pitso (Mosimane) has achieved in the recent past. We are proud of him as a South African and a continental brand.’’

He explained that the Ahly boss was representing the country’s footballing ambitions elegantly.

‘’He has shown his professionalism and dedication to the game. South Africa and Africa should continue to produce such products to take our game to the next level,’’ Jordaan added.
