Al Ahly make a decision on coach Pitso Mosimane

Soccer Laduma indicates that Tawfik has revealed the details of their meeting with the Kagiso-born manager and says that he will continue leading the side. Pitso signed a two-year deal with the African giants last year and it is set to run until June 2022. His improved deal could see an increase of around R8 million that will be added to his R54 million a season. Tawfik said:

“The club wants Mosimane to continue leading the team. A longer contract increases the team’s stability, there will be a meeting between club president Mahmoud El-Khatib and Pitso Mosimane to discuss the new contract at a later date.”

Egyptian website Kingfut reported that the club legend, Ahmed Shobeir, said the possibility is to see the former Mamelodi Sundowns manager getting a bumper deal with a salary increase of 15% to 20%. Shobeir said:

“Pitso fully trusts his wife, who is also his agent, to represent him in the meeting and the most probable outcome is Mosimane’s contract renewal with a 15% or 20% salary increase.”
