Al Ahly SC appoint Pitso Mosimane as new coach

Al Ahly have named former Mamelodi Sundowns’ head coach Pitso Mosimane as a new manager, succeeding Rene Weiler.

Sources and reports also said that Mosimane will land in Cairo on Friday to start his adventure with the Red Devils, as his coaching staff will include three of his assistants.

A few hours ago Pitso Mosimane has resigned from Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mosimane, who won his fifth South African championship with Sundowns last month, begins his new job as soon as he is available.

He was apparently approached after he delivered Sundowns’ 10th Premiership title on a dramatic final day of the season in which Sundowns overtook Kaizer Chiefs who had been in the driving seat of the title race all season.

It was not immediately clear how the club he will be joining and Sundowns will handle the four-year contract he still has with Sundowns.

It is worth mentioning that the future of the current coach of Al Ahly Rene Weiler became unknown as the Red Devils’ board of directors will take their final decision by tomorrow.

Earlier today, Mosimane has resigned from leading Mamelodi Sundowns after he guided them to claim the league title.

Al Ahly president Mahmoud El-Khatib is is a huge fan of Mosimane.

“Al Ahly president Mohmoud El Khatib is a huge fan of Mosimane and was among the first to send his congratulations when Jingles led the Brazilians to a domestic treble success by adding the Nedbank Cup to the Telkom Knockout and Absa Premiership titles they’d already won earlier,” Times reported.

Mosimane managed to guide the Brazilians to claim five South African League titles, in addition to, the CAF Champions League title in 2016.
