‘Al Ahly Will Sack Mosimane’
Another former Al Ahly player has launched a scathing attack on Pitso Mosimane, saying the Egyptian giants will soon sack the South African coach.
Mohamed Fadl, a former striker and a former board member of the Egyptian Football Association, has become the latest of a host of former Al Ahly players to have a go at Mosimane.
Despite Al Ahly returning to winning ways, Fadl criticised the recent defeats performances against Ghazl El Mehalla and Al Masry, while also questioning Mosimane’s team selection and game management.
“Pitso Mosimane is a lucky coach and is good during big games only,” Mohamed Fadl said, as per Kingfut.
“People remember Al Ahly’s performance during the René Weiler era and the achievements of Manuel José only.
“Mosimane doesn’t yet know the potential of coaching Al Ahly. It is not right to play Walter Bwalya at the expense of Mohamed Sherif.
“Next season Bwalya will probably leave on loan, due to the inability of Mosimane to gradually integrate him into the team.
“Mosimane’s management of the games is poor. We saw Ghazl El-Mahalla and Al Masry completely dominating their matches against Al Ahly.
“Mosimane will not continue with Al Ahly and the club will search for a new coach. It’s not information I know, but rather an expectation.
“Because Mosimane is not a coach for a team of a size of Al Ahly. They deserve a better coach than him.”
Fadl also looked at the upcoming Cairo derby between Al Ahly and rivals Zamalek, insisting Patrice Carteron reads games better than Mosimane.
“I predicted Al Ahly’s victory at the last derby, which happened. I hope the Reds will win the next derby,” he added.
“Zamalek have more technical problems more than Al Ahly, but Mosimane’s reading of the matches is not good and Carteron outperforms him in it, but with the return of injured players, the team will become better.”
Al Ahly currently sit four points behind Zamalek on the Egyptian Premier League log, with two games in hand.
Both teams, though, face each other in the second derby of the season on Monday – after Al Ahly won the first one – and the winners will be seen as favourites for the title.
