Ex-Al Ahly manager Pitso Mosimane missing coaching in South Africa

A few days after leaving Al Ahly last week, coach Pitso Mosimane has not ruled out a possible move back to South Africa.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns manager is out of the job and he has been linked with a possible move to Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

However, ‘Jingles’ says he misses the DStv Premiership where he enjoyed much success with the Tshwane giants.

Mosimane bagged the CAF Champions League, Super Cup, Nedbank Cup, Telkom Knockout Cup, and five Premier Soccer League titles.

“I can never say never to coaching in South Africa,” Mosimane said as per KickOff.

“I miss home, and maybe things can change quickly so why not. Let’s ruffle a few feathers and let football be competitive again.”

Apart from a trophy-laden spell in the South African top-flight, Mosimane has also enjoyed success with the North Africans.


He guided the Red Devils to three CAF Champions League finals where he successfully lifted the lucrative trophy and lost it once.

The Egyptian Premier League club succumbed to a 2-0 loss against Wydad Casablanca as he looked to claim his third successive trophy a few weeks ago.

Meanwhile, many Orlando Pirates fans are calling for his name to be included in the list of coaches vying for the managerial role at Mayfair.

The Soweto giants recently parted ways with Fadlu Davids who worked with Mandla Ncikazi at Pirates and are looking for a head coach.

At the same time, his former employers, SuperSport United, are also searching for a new manager since their divorce with Kaitano Tembo.

As things stand, it seems Mosimane’s signature is available on the market but there is talk that it will not just come cheaply considering his success and stature in the domestic scene and beyond.
