The manager has expressed his desire to keep the team in the Saudi Pro League. About his goal, Pitso said:

If we can save them from relegation, there’s an opportunity to make them much better. It’s an adventure, and I like adventures.'

Before Pitso joined Abha FC, he spent three months looking for his next job as a manager following his exit from Al Wahda FC. He joined the team in June 2023 and left in November 2023, along with his technical team. A statement from his agency read:
