- Egyptian legend Hossam Hassan has lashed out at Pitso Mosimane
- Hassan attacked Mosimane's coaching ability and said he'd get sacked after two games at any other club
- Mosimane has led Al Ahly in a near-perfect season and has helped the club hoist three trophies this season alone
Hossam Hassan, a player who holds legendary status in Egyptian football, has lashed at the new head coach Pitso Mosimane.
Pitso Mosimane, the former Mamelodi Sundowns coach, was targeted by Hassan, who is the assistant coach at Al Ittihad.
Hassan believes that Al Ahly's quality has deteriorated under Mosimane despite the club performing very well, only losing points once.
Since Mosimane took over the reins at the Egyptian outfit, the club has performed so well that they have a near-perfect record for this season.
“If Haris, Al Ahly’s kit man, took charge of Al Ahly, he will win trophies,” Hassan said as quoted by KingFut.
He went further and said that if he and Ibrahim Hassan took over the club then they would be bringing home the silverware.
Hassan was very critical of Mosimane and said if he had coached any other club he would have been given the boot after two games. He went even further to claim that Al Ahly had performed badly in the CAF Champions League, despite winning the contest.
However, Mosimane's record with AL Ahly is nothing short of amazing with the club lifting three trophies this season: the Egyptian Premier League, Egyptian Cup and CAF Champions League.
Currently, Al Ahly is sitting on top of the leaderboard in the Egyptian Premier League with Mosimane steering the club past Hassan’s Al Ittihad in their recent games.
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Pitso Mosimane is so quick he's even fast asleep. That's the vibe we get when we heard that the former Mamelodi Sundowns and now the head coach of Egypt's Al Ahly club had bagged the Most Successful Coach award.
He has had a fire season with the Egyptian outfit since joining them and has already raised eyebrows with his stunning performance.Even in the hospital he is winning, he tested positive for Covid-19 and spent Christmas in hospital recovering. He had tested positive for the virus last week.
In other news, Mamelodi Sundowns have terminated the negotiations over Gastón Sirino, saying that the two clubs are too far apart on a deal. The issue revolves around the transfer fee for the striker.
Despite the failure to reach an agreement, the club has said that the relationship between the two clubs remains good.
The Sundowns are going to continue to sign players to European, African and other football clubs, as they have done in the past with the likes of Percy Tau and others.
