It’s understood that Yusha Said, technical analyst in the Orlando Pirates development structures, has been offered a job at Ahly, though it’s not yet clear what responsibilities he will take over with details to be ironed out in the coming days.

Mosimane joined Ahly in October following his shock resignation from Mamelodi Sundowns, where he spent a successful eight years and won five league titles as well as the CAF Champions League in 2016.

Not long after his appointment by Ahly, the ex-Bafana Bafana mentor clinched another Champions League trophy as well as a domestic cup.

He was joined in Cairo by fitness trainer Kabelo Rangoaga, analyst Musi Matlaba, the duo having worked with him at Sundowns, as well as Cavin Johnson, who became his assistant coach after Rulani Mokwena opted to remain at Chloorkop.

Said, who also speaks Arabic, will then become the fourth South African to make the switch and follow Mosimane to Egypt and it is expected that his move will be confirmed before the end of the week.
