Al Ahly director Sayed Abdel-Hafiz says coach Pitso Mosimane is not getting the credit he deserves.
The Red Devils have enjoyed a winning start to the Egyptian Premier League season after making it three wins from three matches after thrashing Zamalek 5-3 last week.
There were still some critics after the historic Cario derby victory, but Abdelhafiz was quick to defend the South African tactician.
“A good thing about Al Ahly fans is that they always want more, you score five goals and they want you to score more,” Abdelhafiz said, as per KingFut.
“Pitso isn’t getting the credit he deserves. We accept criticism but he hasn’t lost a single big game so far.
“Mosimane didn’t ask the players to play defensively against Zamalek, he even encouraged them to score more in the second half.
“When a manager win three CAF Champions League titles it can’t be a coincidence, he led Al Ahly in 16 continental games, of which he lost only one. He’s played against Zamalek four games of which he won three and tied in one.
“Mahmoud El-Khatib [club president] chose Mosimane because he has a project and sacking him was not even considered.”
