Angry Pitso Fumes Over Selection Questions

Pitso Mosimane held no punches in his post-match press conference where he was once again questioned for his squad selection despite winning the match, which left the coach visibly annoyed.

Mosimane managed to overcome a fierce opponent in Ghazl El Mahalla on Monday, winning the match 3-2 to maintain his perfect start to the season with five wins out of five.

Instead of being jovial over the hard-fought win, the coach was in the press conference blowing his gasket when questioned over the selection of Luis Miquissone, who had an impact on the match, ahead of Amar Hamdy.

A journalist asked Mosimane why Hamdy had not been picked to play on the wing ahead of the Mozambican, which drew a fiery response from Mosimane.

“Do you mean that Amar must play? So Luis [Miquissone] must not play? Are you serious? Why must Luis not play? Why when Hassain came in you didn’t ask? Why when Hamdy came in you dint ask questions? Why question Luis? Who won the free-kick?  Where did we get the goal from? From Luis!”

The coach further set the record straight on Al Ahly players, stating that there are no stars in the team and that everybody can be substituted at any given time.

“Luis is a player of Al Ahly and he will play! Luis will play here. The same opportunities as Hamdy, the same opportunities as Hassain. Everybody plays and I substitute everybody. I substitute [Percy] Tau whether he scores or not, I substitute Sherif, I substitute Afsha, I substitute everybody! We do not have a star here. We have equally good players,” he concluded.
