Al Ahly Coach Pitso Mosimane Linked With Qatari Team Al Rayyan, Club Responds to Rumour

  • Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has been linked with a move away from Egypt to the middle eastern country of Qatar
  • Mosimane has enjoyed remarkable success with the Red Devils since joining them in late 2020, but has always been a target of criticism by legends of the club
  • Either way, the South African's achievements in North Africa have put him on the radar of several teams across the globe

Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane is supposedly on the radar of Qatari team Al-Rayyan.

The club has since responded to the rumours that the three-time CAF Champions League had been negotiating with them in secret. Despite his success in North Africa, Mosimane has in recent times been a target for inexplicably disgruntled legends of the club.

According to Kick Off, Mosimane has recently penned a new deal to remain with the Red Devils in the Egyptian Premier League.

However, KingFUT quoted the Qatar Stars League media supervisor Amir Fathy saying:

“What I know is that Mosimane and his agent talked to a number of Qatari clubs before renewing his contract with Al Ahly, but they didn’t get any offers. Right now, there are no negotiations between us [Al-Rayyan] and Mosimane, I also don’t think any Qatari clubs are negotiating with him at the moment.”

No one would blame Pitso Mosimane if he believed that there was a cabal of former Al Ahly players who want him gone from the club pronto.

In recent months, several ex-Red Devils players have made utterances through Egyptian media calling for Mosimane's sacking for the most mundane and baseless reasons, Sports Brief reported. Legendary Pharaohs and Ahly defender Wael Gomaa said recently that Mosimane's game management was not up to scratch.

Two weeks ago, another star in the form of Taha Ismail disingenuously criticised the Mosimane for Ahly falling behind rivals Zamalek early in the Egyptian Premier League.
