With Pitso Mosimane recently receiving criticism for the way his Al Ahly side plays, a rival coach in Egypt has jumped to the former Mamelodi Sundowns boss' defence.
The South African tactician has enjoyed a successful time in North Africa since his exit from Masandawana late last year, having won the Egypt Cup and the CAF Champions League and helped the team claim the Egyptian Premier League title.
Mosimane also guided Al Ahly to a third-place finish at the FIFA Club World Cup, after beating Brazilian side Palmeiras via a penalty shootout in the third-place play-off.
Despite the impressive results, some have questioned the team's performances under the 56-year-old, but Smouha head boss Ahmed Samy is not having it.
"Mosimane's results with Al Ahly are excellent and he gets good results in all the tournaments he participated in," he told OnTime Sports.
"Some people are not satisfied with some matches, but the performance will improve with time.
"Whoever wants a good performance all the time along with good results, that no longer exists. And whoever wants to watch 'beautiful football' should go to the circus.
"Mosimane's results with Al Ahly are excellent in all the tournaments he participates in."
