Mosimane wins FIFA case against Al-Ahli

Sports Brief previously reported that Mosimane has won a FIFA dispute against former Saudi Professional League team Al Ahli and is expected to get millions of Rands in compensation.

The former SuperSport United coach alleged that the Saudi club had not fulfilled their earlier agreement to pay him an R2.8 million incentive if they were promoted to the SPL that season and an additional R1.4 million if he won the division title.
