In Pictures: Pitso Unveiled By Al Ahly

Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was officially unveiled by Al Ahly today and gave his first press conference in front of a packed media crowd – here are his first words as Al Ahly coach and images of the day.

Scroll through the gallery above to see images of Pitso’s Al Ahly unveiling.

The 56-year-old became the first non-Egyptian African head coach to take charge of the Club of the Century following eight years with Masandawana.

'Jingles' used the opportunity to thank his new bosses for putting their faith in him to guide the club after putting pen to paper on a two-year deal.

"First, I must thank (president) Mahmoud El Khatib and the board," he said.

"They have entrusted me with the opportunity to lead and carry the Team of the Century.

"And I know how big this job is.

"I come here with the practical experience of having played Al Ahly four times, two times in Cairo and two times in South Africa and I have the experience of knowing how big Al Ahly are on the continent."

Mosimane already took charge of his first training session on Friday and will face Al Mokawloon in his first game on Sunday.

Al Ahly already secured the Egyptian league title, their 42nd trophy this century, and will face Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League semi-final.
