Former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane has confirmed his appointment date at his new club in Egypt.

Mosimane said: “It is with pride and gratitude that I can announce I have accepted an offer to join an international side with effect from the 2nd of October, 2020. This said club extended an offer to join their illustrious team with the desire that I lead them in the quest for more titles – and I am honoured.”

The four times championship winning mentor confirmed his resignation from Sundowns, after nearly eight years at the helm, on Wednesday afternoon.

Siya sources have indicated that he is set to fly out to Cairo on Thursday afternoon and then be unveiled as Al Ahly coach, a day after the club confirms its decision on his predecessor, Swiss born mentor, Rene Weiler.

“Although it is difficult to let go, especially because I had more plans for Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club, the universe has just offered me a new challenge. After almost eight years at Sundowns, and 11 trophies achieved, I need a new challenge that will push me out of my comfort zone and Sundown can use a new and fresh perspective,” he said.

“While I had four years left in my current contract. This offer is a huge opportunity for me that would not have come had I not had the privilege of being part of the Sundown team that won the CAF Champions League.”
