Ahly Legend Questions Mosimane After Outburst

Pitso Mosimane has been questioned over his recent press conference outburst by Al Ahly legend Ahmed Shobier.

Mosimane didn’t hold back in his response to questioning over his team selection and tactical substitutions when a journalist probed about his decision to leave midfielder Amar Hamdy on the bench.

The South African brought on off-season signing Luis Miquisonne instead and the Mozambique international winger won the free-kick which led to the match-winning goal from Ali Maaloul.

While Shobier admitted Mosimane is at his own discretion to respond in the manner in which he likes, he’s urged the former Mamelodi Sundowns mentor to ignore media probing their own agendas.

“I didn’t like to see Mosimane getting angry yesterday, I think he should have answered the way he sees fit and moved on,” Shobeir said on Ontime Sports, as per KingFut.

“Mosimane’s anger in press conferences is not something I think is right, I have always praised his calm attitude.

“He should take the press conferences the way he prefers, he can choose which questions to answer and which to ignore. I know why Mosimane got angry yesterday, but it’s not the time to tell the story.”

Ahly are currently at the summit of the Egyptian Premier League table with five wins from five, two points ahead of second-placed Pyramids and five ahead of champions Zamalek who are in third.
