Pitso Breaks Silence Following R54m Contract Agreement

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has broken his silence following the club’s decision to allow him to see out his R54 million-a-season contract.

Last week, Al Ahly confirmed via the club’s official website that following a meeting between Head of Transfers Amr Tawfik and Mosimane’s camp, the coach would see out the remainder of his two-year contract without a pay rise following rife speculation about the coach’s future.

By remaining at Al Ahly for longer than a year, Mosimane has become just the first coach in five years after Hossam El Badry to remain in the Red Eagles hot seat for more than a year. All six coaches before him have failed to achieve that feat.

Now, Mosimane has broken his silence over his contractual issues via a tweet in which he reveals his desire to achieve a third consecutive CAF Champions League title with the Egyptian giants.

"Thank you very much Al Ahly, all parties are happy after that meeting. We all continue with full energies and focus to finish the current contract, ending this season. In sha'Allah, we might both want to enter into discussions for the new contract. It’s all about timing,” he tweeted.

The coach’s title defence got off to a stuttering start this weekend, however, as his side was held to a one-all draw with Union Sportive de la Gendarmerie Nationale in the first leg of the round of 32 in Niger, which saw the 57-year-old call for the implementation of VAR (Video Referee Assistant) on the African continent.

“There is only one thing I will say to my beloved continent, when are they going to put VAR in all games? VAR will support everyone because sometimes it is not easy for the referee to see,” he said after the match.
