Official: Pitso Lands New Club

Former Mamelodu Sundowns and Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has landed himself a new club after agreeing to a short-term deal with Abha Football Club.

Mosimane has been without a club since leaving UAE side Al Whada in October and had been linked to clubs like Kaizer Chiefs and Zamalek, saying he would wait for the right project.

He has now put pen to paper with Abha Club in Saudi Arabia, as his agent and wife Moira Tlhagale confirmed.

“I can confirm to you that coach Pitso has officially signed with Saudi Arabia club Abha FC on Thursday,” the MT Sports MD told Sunday World.

“Coach Pitso will be returning to the gulf and has signed a four-month contract with the team until the end of the season.

“His mandate is clear and that is to ensure that Abha survives relegation and plays in the Pro League again next season.”

It will be a second stint for Mosimane in Saudi Arabia after he helped Al Ahli Jeddah to promotion to the Pro League after winning the Yelo League.

However, he left the club before the Public Investment Fund pumped money in the big four teams in the league.

Abha, meanwhile, are currently sitting in 17th place and Mosimane’s mission is to keep them in the Saudi top flight.

According to Sunday World, he takes along his “navi seals”, Maahier Davids, Kabelo Rangoaga, Musi Matlaba, Kyle Solomon, and goalkeeper coach Hamad Alyami.
