Pitso Mosimane Offered Al Ahly Job
Pitso Mosimane has been contacted by Egyptian club, Al Ahly, to take over as head at the North African club coach after Rene Weiler left the club on Sunday.
According to KickOff.com, Al Ahly made initial contact with Mosimane and Masandawana president Patrice Motsepe last week after Weiler informed the club of his desire to leave the club. The publication quotes its source as having said:
Ahly administration has chosen other coaches on the waiting list and one of them will be negotiated in the event that the contract with Pitso Mosimane who is the closest to taking the job fails. The new coach will be confirmed on Thursday.
Ahly president Mohmoud El Khatib is a huge fan of Mosimane and believes that he is the right man to lead them to success in the CAF African Champions League title.
Mosimane won the domestic Treble with Sundowns last season, that is, the Absa Premiership title, the Nedbank Cup, and the Telkom Knockout. He also won the CAF Champions League with Sundowns in 2016.
Meanwhile, Sundowns’ Yogesh Singh has refuted reports that Mosimame has resigned from the club. Said Singh:
We have seen these things on the online media about Pitso being linked to Al Ahly. But he has not resigned. This speculation comes because the coach of Al Ahly resigned on Sunday.
