Official: Pitso Lands New Club

Pitso Mosimane was unveiled by United Arab Emirates Pro League club Al Wahda FC on Saturday evening.

Just days after officially leaving Saudi Arabian side Al Ahli, Mosimane was represented as new head coach by Al Wahda.

He was appointed as Al Ahli coach in September 2022 and took over the club sitting in seventh position after five games, but lead them back to the Saudi Pro League with four games to spare.

However, there were whispers that the club would part ways with the coach, despite this incredible achievement, as reported by iDiski Times.

Mosimane himself opted to end his contract with Al Ahli but wasn’t without a job for long.

“Al Wahda FC has signed with the South African Technical Director Pitso Mosimane to lead the first team as a Head Coach,” the club stated.

“The Club’s Board of Directors welcomes Mr Mosimane to the Home of Champion; wishing him the success in serving the club’s leadership, administration and fans ambitions.”

Al Wahda won four UAE Po League titles, but their last came in 2009/10.

They finished third in the previous campaign and just missed out on qualification for the Asian Champions League.

Al Wahda become Mosimane’s fifth club after SuperSport United, Mamelodi Sundowns, Al Ahly and Al Ahli Saudi. So far he has won 19 career trophies.
