Here's the early reaction from South African football fans and the club to the Brazilians record title glory on Twitter.
Pitso, the only SA coach to win the CAF Champions League, will go down as one of the very best and there’s nothing any howler can do about it. You can only admire his work ethic. We will praise him while he’s still alive— Nkareng Matshe (@Nkareng) April 28, 2018
