Pitso Punished, Hands Ahly Players 24-Hour Rest

The Egyptian Football Association did not take kindly to the comments made by Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane, who was slapped with a fine – while the coach resorted to strange measures ahead of his side’s clash with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mosimane had a go at the Egyptian FA following his side’s one-all draw with Zamalek on Monday, accusing the association of failing to protect the country’s only participant in the CAF Champions League.

“They are resting, we are playing, so what does it mean to you? For me, if I had my way, because Ahly is the only team that is playing CAF Champions League representing Egypt, we would protect Ahly if I was Egypt,” Mosimane said.

These comments weren’t received well by the Egyptian FA, who in an official statement confirmed that the 56-year-old had been given a £E20 000 (±R18 000) fine, for what they deemed as ‘hate speech’. 

Meanwhile, Mosimane had taken an odd decision to give his side a 24-hour rest from training on Wednesday.

According to Al Ahly’s official website, the Red Eagles players will resume training on Thursday, in light of their CAF Champions League quarterfinal first leg encounter against Mamelodi Sundowns in Cairo on Saturday.
