Al Ahly Legend Backs Pitso

Pitso Mosimane’s contract situation with Al Ahly has made waves in Egypt and another legend has now backed the South African, insisting the club must make the right decision.

‘Jingles’ and Al Ahly reached a stalemate in contract talks last week, as iDiski Times reported on Monday.

The main issue between Mosimane’s camp and the club is a “protection clause” that the coaches’ camp want in the contract, while the club are refusing to give in.

However, Mosimane has now received the backing of former Al Ahly midfielder Gilberto who has praised the South African coach and insisted the club must not let him go. 

“I follow Al Ahly’s games. They have a very strong team, but they lost the league title, which is normal as there is no team that always wins,” he said, as per Kingfut.

“But Al Ahly is used to winning, sometimes we go through bad times, and Zamalek won because they were better.

“I am happy that Al Ahly are dominating football in Africa and losing the league title will not stop them.

“Mosimane is an efficient coach and joined Al Ahly during a difficult period. He won two CAF Champions League titles and proved his competence after a year with the club.

“Mosimane deserves respect, there are things that are not going well between the club and the coach, but Al Ahly must reconsider everything and make the right decision.

Al Ahly have learnt whom they will face at the start of the new Egyptian Premier League, facing Ismaily in their first game when the new season starts on 25 October.
