Al-Ahli Saudi’s management previously explained that they were deciding whether to keep Mosimane for another season, despite the success he has brought to the club. Under Mosimane, Al-Ahli won the Yelo League and secured promotion.

As Kick Off noted, the club was looking to replace him with a more high-profile manager for next season.

With his job for next season not certain, Mosimane opened up on another worry he has at the club.

As noted by iDiskiTimes, Mosimane recently revealed that he hasn’t received a salary since January.

“My salaries were delayed for a period ranging between two and two months. I did not get my salary for the last four months,” he said.
“The last salary I received, as well as the players, was last January. And imagine this beautiful story that qualification takes place despite the players not receiving bonuses and salaries,” Mosimane added.

The latest admission, which reflects poorly on the club, won’t sit well with Al-Ahli’s management, who are already keen to part ways with the coach.
