Al Ahly Rubbish ‘Sack’ Pitso Rumours

Al Ahly have rubbished rumours that they were looking at Zamalek coach Patrice Carteron to replace Pitso Mosimane.

The South African coach has come under a bit of pressure after missing out on back-to-back trophies, first seeing Zamalek lift the Egyptian league title before losing to Tala’ea El Gaish in the Egyptian Super Cup.

There had been rumours that Al Ahly could look at Carteron, the coach of bitter rivals Zamalek, to replace Mosimane but the club’s spokes person dismissed those vehemently, saying they didn’t think about replacing Mosimane.

“It upsets me that some of the media professionals follow what agents say. Al Ahly does not think about signing Carteron and does not think about replacing Mosimane,” Adli El Keiy told Al Ahly TV.

“I asked Amir Tawfik (Al Ahly’s head of transfers) and he assured me that Al Ahly have never thought of sacking Pitso Mosimane. 

“Al Ahly don’t sack a coach because of the result of a single match. Al Ahly appointed Mosimane to lead the project.”

El Keiy also laughed of rumours that Al Ahly could ever appoint Carteron after all the comments he’s made about the Red Devils in the past. 

“Al Ahly are thinking of Carteron? He used Al Ahly’s name to renew his contract with Zamalek,” he added.

“Take it from me, it is impossible for this man (Carteron) to work for Al Ahly again, even for free, after what he said about the club.”

Carteron signed a new three-year contract with Zamalek after leading them to their 13th Egyptian league title and their first since 2016.
