A former Al Ahly of Egypt star, Nasser Maher, has opened up on his troubling experience during his time at the club under Pitso Mosimane.

Zamalek's new signing recounted his problematic time at his former club while sharing details of his new deal.

Maher, who is a product of Al Ahly's youth academy, played for the Reds between 2016 and 2021, but he could not cement his place in the starting lineup.

According to him, Pitso Mosimane did not give him the opportunity, and he blames the tactician for his struggles at the club.

The 27-year-old expressed delight over his move to Zamalek and hopes for a totally different experience.

Maher said via KingFut:

"I wasn’t regularly featured in the starting lineup, due to a decision by Pitso Mosimane, without a clear reason.
“I suffered a lot at Al Ahly, and I didn’t get enough opportunities. I wanted to showcase my abilities well. This didn’t happen due to the poor treatment from some former Al Ahly coaches.
“Pitso Mosimane is one of the coaches who treated me very poorly. He deliberately belittled the players and got into many problems with several players at Al Ahly, including Walid Soliman."

Pitso Mosimane signs new striker at Abha Club

Sports Brief earlier reported that South African tactician Mosimane recently signed a new striker for his new team, Abha Football Club, amid interest in Stellenbosch FC star Iqraam Rayners.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns manager is preparing for the resumption of the Saudi Pro League, with his first official match in charge of the club being against Al-Taawoun.

The 59-year-old signed a four-month deal with the Saudi Arabian side recently and is tasked with taking the Zaeem Al-Janoub out of relegation this season.
