Ex-Al Ahly Star Urges Club To Replace Pitso

Despite Al Ahly reaching the semi-final stage of the CAF Champions League, Wael Gomaa has said he hopes the club's board replaces Pitso Mosimane.

Al Ahly Star Sends Message To Pitso After Penalty Miss

The African champions marched on to the last four at the weekend following a 3-2 aggregate win over Raja Casablanca, but not all of those with an affinity for the club appear happy with the job Mosimane is doing in Egypt.

Ex-Al Ahly and Pharaohs defender Gomaa, who made 345 appearances for the 42-time Egyptian Premier League winners, was frustrated with the team's performance in their 1-1 draw in Cairo and suggested Mosimane should be replaced when the CAF campaign has concluded.

"I'd like to congratulate Al Ahly for qualifying, they earned it at the first leg, but tonight, the performance was not convincing," he said, according to KingFut.

"Mosimane's management of the game was poor. Al Ahly should have attacked more, they have higher quality players than Raja.

"Pitso just thought about qualifying, but Al Ahly could have played better football. Mosimane took a massive risk and it could have backfired, he's lucky to coach Al Ahly.

"Hussain El-Shahat was the best player on the pitch and he took him out. Al Ahly could have conceded more goals tonight, we were lucky.

"I also didn't see a single Al Ahly player improve during Mosimane's time with the club. I don't wish defeat for Al Ahly so that Mosimane leaves, but Al Ahly can win with better performance, for sure.

"Once this Champions League campaign is over, Al Ahly can look for another manager. I am sure the team can improve with another coach. The club board is happy with Pitso because he's winning, but we are not happy because he makes Al Ahly look like a small club."

Here are the four teams in the semi-final stage of the competition:
