Pitso Mosimane, the coach of Al Ahly, has refuted suggestions that Percy Tau's move to Egypt is a step back in his career.

Some, like former Bafana Bafana and Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy, have criticised the 27-year-old for leaving the Premier League to join Pitso Mosimane's Ahly.

"What is the point of me sitting on the bench when I am not playing? I want to see myself playing and my family wants to play. People will always have opinions, this is a big country," said Tau.

Pitso Mosimane loses the league to bitter rivals Zamalek

In other soccer news, Briefly News reported that Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly was forced to give up their Egyptians' title following a failure on Tuesday night to clinch all three points against El Gouna.

Al Ahly went to El Gouna Stadium gunning for a win because he was aware that three points would give them a fighting chance to keep hunting to defending their crown. But a draw of 3-3 was the end for Mosimane and his charges, according to The South African.

Zamalek, the title opponents of Al Ahly, still played their part and had to achieve the outcome required to take full advantage of the scenario. Finally, with a 2-0 win against El-Entag El Harby they helped their own cause admirably and Mosimane ended up losing out.
