In Pics: Perfect Pitso Prepares For Hoodoo Outfit

With four wins in four matches, Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane has enjoyed a perfect start to the season and will be looking to continue that streak in Monday afternoon’s highly-anticipated clash against a familiar opponent.

View Al Ahly’s preparations for Monday’s match in the gallery above.

Victories over Ismaily, National Bank, Al Mokawloon as well as a resounding 5-3 victory over arch-rivals Zamalek, means that Mosimane and his Red Eagles are soaring at the top of the Egyptian League standings.

There is, however, very little respite for the Egyptian giants with their second match in just three days.

Next up for Mosimane and his men is an away trip to fourth-placed Ghazl El Mahalla, a place where Al Ahly suffered defeat in their last visit.

To make matters worse for the experienced coach, he will have to do without key defender Hamdy Fathy, who despite scoring the winning goal, received a red card in Friday’s win over Arab Contractors.

"We will be losing an important player. He is a multi-functional player, who can play in several positions. But we cannot make excuses as we have other players," Mosimane told the media of the club’s central defender.

Thursday’s match against Smouha will be the last league match for Mosimane and his troops before a month-long break in which the Egyptian giants plan to travel to the UAE for a mid-season camp where they will spend between 10 to 15 days and play a couple of friendly games to prepare for the rest of the season.
