As noted by Soccer Laduma, Mosimane has been appointed as the new head coach of Al Wahda FC. The side, which finished third in the UAE Pro League last season, confirmed the signing via social media.

Al Wahda was founded in 2013 under the directive of His Highness Sheikh Theyab Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Mosimane’s troubles in Saudi Arabia

Mosimane’s future was in the air recently after he announced that he would leave Al-Ahli.

Mosimane led the side to the Yelo League title and promotion to the Saudi Pro League. Despite his success, the club wanted to replace the South African with a more high-profile manager.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns manager also claimed that he and his technical team weren’t paid a salary for a few months.

Mosimane was then linked with a move back to South Africa, with Kaizer Chiefs fans clamouring for his signature, but he has now opted to head to the UAE.

Mourinho could replace Mosimane

Al-Ahli Saudi are on a quest to appoint a new high-profile manager ahead of next season, Sports Brief previously reported.

Mosimane currently manages the Saudi Arabian side, but the club have not hidden their ambitions of wanting to replace him.

The newly-promoted Saudi Pro League side are reportedly in talks with the current manager of Roma, Jose Mourinho.

Pitso hasn't been paid

Pitso Mosimane could have had better times in Saudi Arabia.

The South African tactician has enjoyed success at the club in the league, but things haven’t been the easiest off the field, Sports Brief reported previously.

Pitso's job is not guaranteed for next season as the club looks to replace him, and Jingles also recently revealed that he and his team had yet to be paid a salary since January.
