  • Former Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane had a few choice words for those who believe he needs to move on from the club
  • The 57-year-old South African somehow found fault with him paying tribute to a favoured player of his while still in Cairo
  • Mosimane's shocking departure from the Red Devils was blighted by a campaign to see him removed from the job by a section of the support base

Some observers in local football believe that Pitso Mosimane must sever ties completely with Al Ahly.

His departure from the club in June was as controversial as it was unceremonious. Since then, many South Africans on social media have taken pleasure in any misfortune that has befallen Egypt's biggest club.

However, this has taken an absurd turn because of what Mosimane recently did. According to TimesLIVE, the 57-year-old paid tribute to the retiring Walid Soliman, who played a key role during Mosimane's short but successful stint in Cairo.

He tweeted:

Exciting feature: Check out news exactly for YOU ➡️ find "Recommended for you" block and enjoy!

“Legend. I never started you in any game, and yet you scored so many games for me. That’s the respect you gave me and the team. You remained the same man of honour even during tough times. Good Luck in your future endeavours. Al Ahly has a future in you. I salute”

However, @EconomicsMoghel said:

"E tswa da Ntate Pitso, mense ga bare frustana van die one"

Tuco Ramirez said:

"You seem to respect the Egyptians more than you respect the South Africans. You show more respect and "humility" towards them even though they chewed and spat you out and you are resentful and discourteous towards your former employers here, who made you the man you are today."

The resignations continue at Egyptian superclub Al Ahly.

Unsurprisingly, it was the turn of the Red Devils' Portuguese coach Ricardo Soares to call it quits, as was reported by Sports Brief. He had replaced South Africa's Pitso Mosimane, who walked away from the hot seat in early June following a CAF Champions League final loss to Wydad Casablanca.

This was compounded by an incessant campaign from certain sections of the club's supporters, media and former players that wanted him gone.
