Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has been officially announced as Al Ahly coach.
Mosimane, 56, signed a two-year contract with the Egyptian Premier League champions and sources say he has been tasked to win the CAF Champions League.
He replaces Swiss tactician Rene Weiler.
Mosimane won three titles for Sundowns last season and could help his new pay masters achieve the same in the same year.
Ahly are currently in the semi-finals of Africa’s elite club competition, Champions League and in the last-16 of the Egyptian Cup and have already secured the league title.
“The contract with Mr Pitso Mosimane, South African head coach of the first team, is effective as of tomorrow, Friday 2 October 2020, for a period of two seasons,” the club statement read.
“He will be joined with his assistants, which includes a general coach, a physical trainer and a performance analyst. Also joining is Belgian Michel Yancon as goalkeeping coach, who has been retained, and Sayed Abdel Hafeez as director of football.”
And thus, reports from South Africa have already started linking Mosimane’s former assistants at Sundowns to a possible move to Egypt.
Mosimane is expected to make his debut for The Red Devils on Sunday when they face Al Mokawloon.
