The South African tactican and Al Ahly parted ways on Monday by mutual consent after a torphy-laden two year spell in Cairo.

Mosimane did come in for some criticism after the CAF Champions League final loss to Wydad Casablanca and former Egypt striker Mohamed 'Gedo' Nagy claims the coach lost the dressing room.

Mosimane thought that Al Ahly are like Sundowns, he thought people wouldn’t criticize him if he wins trophies."

"He also lost the locker room and players’ support after criticising them publicly, like Mohamed Sherif and Hossam Hassan," he continued.

"Al Ahly have been struggling with Mosimane in the recent games, it was his worst period with the team. I believe he chose the right time to leave."

"Despite his successful stint with Al Ahly, Pitso lost the locker room due to his aggressive comments against some players," said Mido.

"I’d like to thank Pitso for his time with Al Ahly, he was a very good addition to the Egyptian Premier League."
