Al Ahly Part Ways With Coach Pitso Mosimane

Egyptian Premier League giants Al Ahly have parted ways with head coach Pitso Mosimane on a mutual agreement, the club has confirmed.

The South African has been the coach of the Red Eagles since August 2020 and won two consecutive African Champions League titles, CAF Super Cup, an Egypt Premier League crown and the Egyptian Cup.

Al Aly failed to capture last season’s African title when they were beaten by Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca in the final.

In a statement, the Cairo giants revealed that they were keen for Mosimane to continue with Ahly, but that the former Mamelodi Sundowns manager asked to be released from his contract.

“Mahmoud El Khatib, the club’s president, held a meeting with Yassin Mansour, the chairman of Al Ahly Football Company, Hossam Ghaly, the club’s board member, and the Planning Committee members, to discuss Mosimane’s future with the club,” the statement reads in part.

“During the meeting, they all decided that he should continue his mission with Al Ahly as a result of the achievements he managed to accomplish during the previous period.

“However, during the meeting that was previously held, Mosimane requested to leave and that he is satisfied with the achievements he managed to accomplish with the club.

“Later on, Mosimane’s decision was discussed and it was decided to approve his request to part ways with the club and to thank him for the achievements that he accomplished with the club.”

Mosimane joined Al Ahly from South African Premier League giants Mamelodi Sundowns in October 2020 on a two-year deal.

He renewed his contract in March as a reward of his achievements at the record African champions.

The 57-year-old was in charge for 105 matches, with a record of 68 wins, 27 draws and just 10 defeats.
