Mosimane urges CAF to implement VAR

AL Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has reiterated his plea for the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to start making use of VAR in their club competitions.

This, after his side lost 1-0 to Mamelodi Sundowns at the Cairo International Stadium on Saturday when Thapelo Morena’s 85th-minute goal settled the CAF Champions League clash.

Mosimane pointed to two incidents during the Group A encounter where VAR would have proved useful. Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene appeared to handle the ball outside his area in the second half, while Percy Tau had a goal disallowed for offside.

The Red Eagles remain winless in the group and they trail the Brazilians by six points in third place, although they do have a game in hand.

“I will always ask CAF to use VAR throughout the whole competition,” the former Sundowns coach said.
