Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has come under some harsh criticism following his side’s goalless draw against Bank Al Ahly.
The draw was Mosimane’s second this season, which leaves them in first place on the Egyptian Premier League standings, although second place Zamalek trail them by just one point, with a game in hand.
Not for the first time, this season has the 56-year-old has faced the wrath of an Al Ahly legend.
This time it was former Al Ahly goalkeeper Ahmed Shobier who has criticized Mosimane and questioned his tactics.
“Last season, Al Ahly played 16 games without dropping any points. But this season, they lost four points in only eight games, with a goalless draw against Wadi Degla and Bank Al Ahly,” the pundit said after the game.
“Mosimane should know that Walid Soliman and Mahmoud Kahraba are not centre-forwards. That role is for the likes of Mohamed Sherif and Walter Bwalya, and the decision to not start any of them is baffling to me.
“He was also very late to make the substitutions. Why does he have to wait until the final ten minutes to start making changes,” Shobier said.
Mosimane’s next game is against lowly Arab Contractors on Thursday 21 January.
