Mosimane, who took over the reins at the Red Eagles in October last year walked away with the award, which was presented by the Egyptian Sports Critics Association at their annual media award ceremony on Saturday.

The 56-year-old proved to be an instant hit in Cairo and managed to win the CAF Champions League and Egypt Cup, as well as the Egyptian Premier League. He also led the Club of the Century to the FIFA Club World Cup where he finished third.

Taking to Twitter, the former Mamelodi Sundowns coach shared his delight at winning the prestigious award and reserved a few words of appreciation to those closest to him.

“The second personal award in 7 months. Thank you Al Ahly (players, technical, staff, our supporters and President Khatib and his board members, my family). My Mother, from Khoza’s  clan, taught me that, ’Mintirho Ya Vulavula’ and leave the rest to others to do the talking,” Mosimane tweeted.

Mosimane’s award came two days after he guided Al Ahly to a 1-0 win over Simba SC of Tanzania to close out the CAF Champions League group stage.
