Read a few of their many posts below:
"Al Ahly is into the Semi-Finals of the Club World Cup. Where our very own Pitso Mosimane will test his skills against Bayern Munich. FREAKING BAYERN MUNICH. Unbelievable.This man."
"After realised, they finally had a solid team that could dominate & win, they knew, all was needed was a LEADER. They've failed to win the CAFCC for 7 yrs. Pitso didn't apply 4 the job, he was chosen bcoz of his qualities. So, for those doubters, always remember this fact."
"Pitso is the best coach SA has produced. Give the man his flowers"
Briefly.co.za also reported that Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has a dream of opening up a soccer school in Mzansi. The 56-year-old spoke about an academic football school similar to the rugby schools in South Africa instead of owning a club in future.
The former Mamelodi Sundowns coach said he is grateful to Al Ahly as they have allowed him to continue with his school programme back in SA. He wants the academic level of his future soccer school to be high enough that parents want their children to go there.
He added that if he gets the money to open the school, he'll be waiting to do so. A report by Sunday World stated that Mosimane was speaking to the South African Football Journalists Association adding that the coach said he did not have the money to buy a club.
