The Red Devils will compete in the third-place play-off for the second straight year after losing 2-0 to the South American champions on Wednesday evening.

Pitso Mosimane's charges will now do battle with Saudi Arabian outfit Al Hilal, who lost to Chelsea in their semi-final on Thursday evening.

El Maghrabi was pleased to get minutes in the tournament, but insists the squad are fully focused on getting the job done on Saturday night.

“I will always remember this tournament and will cherish the fact that I played in the first game against C.F. Monterrey. I won’t forget how the fans supported me when I was substituted after being injured," the defender told the club's official website.

“All the players are concentrated and focused on Saturday’s game against Al Hilal. We will do our best to win the bronze medal and make our fans happy.

“I would like to thank the coaching staff and the players who have been very supportive during the past period. They helped me a lot in adapting to the first team’s environment.”
