Mosimane Wins Coach Of The Month Award Again

Pitso Mosimane has been named Yelo League Coach of the Month for a second time this season.

The South African tactician, whose future is uncertain at Al Ahli Saudi FC, was named Coach of the Month May in the Saudi Arabian First Division.

Mosimane won three games in May, drew one and lost one, securing promotion to the Saudi Pro League with four games to spare and also bagging the Yelo League title.

As a consequence, Mosimane received the monthly gong for a second time after already receiving it in February.

“Thank you, I appreciate the award for the second month,” he wrote on social media.

“God teaches us to appreciate little things, because one day after they add up, we will look back and realise that they were big things.

“Sometimes it is just little things that makes one happy. Always appreciate and be humble of the little been given.”

Meanwhile, Mosimane’s future at Al Ahli remains uncertain after the Jeddah were one of four club which were the country’s Public Investment Fund (PIF), who own a 80% share in Premier League side Newcastle United, took control over.

Mosimane, who revealed he hasn’t been paid since April, stated he got an automatic extension to his deal when he secured promotion.

However, all contract talks have been placed on hold until the new PIF takeover is complete.
