Al Ahly have seemingly provided an update on Pitso Mosimane’s future at the Egyptian giants!

Pitso Mosimane has been under immense scrutiny after failing to win the Egyptian Super Cup however the club have given him their backing, for the immediate future at least.

Al Ahly went down in penalties following a goalless draw in the Egyptian Super Cup earlier this week against a less fancied El Gaish side.

This came just weeks after rivals Zamalek beat Al Ahly to the Egyptian Premier League title.

Pitso Mosimane’s future at the club had become a hot topic of late however the ‘Club of the century’ have put any ideas of sacking the three-time CAF Champions League winning coach to bed.

Al Ahly took to social media to confirm the club’s stance regarding Pitso Mosimane. This came after many Egyptian fans took to social media to request the immediate sacking of the former Mamelodi Sundowns mentor.

‘In Jingles we trust’ read a tweet by the club which included an image saying, ‘We trust you.’

While Pitso Mosimane’s job may be safe for the time being, Al Ahly made their intentions clear on the need for winning titles by fining players and staff members following the side’s Super Cup loss.

“Mahmoud El Khatib, Al Ahly’s president, decided to impose a 300k fine on Al Ahly players, director of football and the coaching staff after the disappointing performance in the Egyptian Super Cup on Tuesday, despite the great support that the team receives to achieve titles and meet the expectations of the fans. Also, the administrative staff and the medical staff will be subjected to a fine that is relative to their salaries.” Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly revealed in a club statement.
