Al Ahly Legend: Pitso's Anger Unnecessary

A former Al Ahly player has admitted that he did not like how angrily Pitso Mosimane reacted in his recent press conference.

The Red Devils beat Ghazl El Mahalla 3-2 on Monday to maintain a perfect start to the season with five wins out of five matches.

After that clash, however, Mosimane appeared furious when a journalist in a post-match press conference asked him why he decided to bring on Mozambique international Luis Miquisonne instead of Amar Hamdy. 

Responding to the journalist, the ex-Mamelodi Sundowns boss said: "Do you mean that Amar must play? So Luis [Miquissone] must not play? Are you serious? Why must Luis not play? Why, when Hassain came in, you didn't ask [questions]? Why, when Hamdy came in, you didn't ask questions? Why question Luis? Who won the free-kick? Where did we get the goal from? From Luis!"

While many seemed to understand Mosimane's frustration, Al Ahly legend Ahmed Shobeir has admitted he would have preferred the South African tactician to be more measured in his answer.

"I didn't like to see Mosimane getting angry yesterday, I think he should have answered the way he sees fit and moved on," he told Ontime Sports, as per KingFut.

"Mosimane's anger in press conferences is not something I think is right, I have always praised his calm attitude.

"He should take the press conferences the way he prefers, he can choose which questions to answer and which to ignore. I know why Mosimane got angry yesterday, but it's not the time to tell the story."
