“I have believed in my team since the start of the tournament because they’re extremely talented. It was an excellent performance today in all areas against a strong Brazilian team with fantastic players. It’s no accident that we’re in the final - it’s the product of hard work. My thanks go to our unbelievable fans, their support is immensely valuable to us and we aim to make them happy in return. Now we have to recover as quickly as possible before our final preparations for the final against FC Bayern Munchen. They’re a fantastic team who won three titles last season, and in Pep Guardiola they have a great coach who has already embedded his football philosophy in the team. But we’ll go into the final with confidence too, believe in ourselves and give our all once more.” Faouzi Benzarti, coach of Raja Casablanca
