Pitso Mosimane has opened up on his views about the newly created African Football League after his former side, Mamelodi Sundowns, won the inaugural edition.

The Brazilians defeated Moroccan side, Wydad SC in a double-legged final of the competition earlier this month to become the first club to win the AFL trophy.

There were only eight teams that participated in the inaugural edition of the continental competition.

Mosimane, during an interview with the South African Football Journalists Association (SAFJA), aired his opinion about the newly formed AFL, according to a report by iDiskiTimes.

"I do not think we should talk about that. That is a tournament, that is not 'CAF'; if you are talking about this competition that [Mamelodi] Sundowns just won, where you handpick, I do not know how many teams? Eight? Eight out of 54 countries [in Africa], so that is a tournament. I do not know," he said.

The former Al Ahly boss went further to disclose the positive aspects of the competition during the same interview.

"I think for me, the only thing that I really like about this tournament is the financials behind it. Empowering clubs, clubs getting more money, but that is it, that is about it," Mosimane concluded.
