Although it was announced two months ago that Pitso Mosimane had signed a new two-year deal at Al Ahly, an ex-player of the Egyptian giants has warned the club against keeping the South African tactician on board.
It was confirmed in March that the ex-Mamelodi Sundowns boss had agreed a two-year extension with the 2020/21 CAF Champions League winners, putting an end to months of speculation that he could leave the club.
Former Al Ahly forward Mohamed Fadl, however, wishes the board would revisit their stance on the 57-year-old, as he explained in a recent interview.
"I think Mosimane is a good coach, but I also think Al Ahly should reconsider extending his contract," he said, according to KingFut.
"I hope Al Ahly hire (Herve) Renard or (Vahid) Halilhodzic, and I know the club can bring in such names, just like when they signed (Rene) Weiler a while ago.
"But to his credit, Mosimane has won trophies and maybe that's why Al Ahly should renew his contract because there is not enough time right now to bring in someone else.
"They could extend his contract by just one year, but certainly not more than that."
Mosimane has won five trophies since joining Al Ahly in 2020, including back-to-back CAF Champions League titles.
