Pitso Mosimane could be leaving Al Ahly by the end of this week if his contract demands are not met. Mosimane is asking for a "protection clause" and the club seems reluctant to add it onto his contract.
The South African coach is nearing the end of his initial contract with the club and renewal was on the cards. Now it is being reported that Mosimane is going to leave the club if he doesn't get what he's asking for.
"Contract renewal talks between Pitso Mosimane and Ahly reached a stalemate last week and it is believed that the only way for the situation to change or improve, is if the two parties find each other and move forward by agreeing the terms of the new contract," reports iDiskiTimes.
The reason for Mosimane wanting the clause in his contract is so that he will be protected if the fans start calling for his sacking - which is something very common for North African teams.

While the Al Ahly chairman is very fond of coach Pitso, he is unable to convince the club to put the clause in his contract which could leave to his departure within the next week according to The South African.
Pitso Mosimane has won back-to-back CAF Champions League titles, as well as one Egyptian Premier League, Egyptian Cup, and CAF Super Cup since joining Al Ahly from South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns just under a year ago.
Pitso Mosimane gets fined R280 000 along with Al Ahly staff
Briefly News previously reported that Al Ahly's management has responded angrily to their Egyptian Super Cup penalty shootout loss to Tala'ea El Gaish on Tuesday night, imposing a large fine on the players and technical staff the following day.
For the loss, Al Ahly penalised each player, as well as coach Pitso Mosimane and his staff and director of football Sayed Abdelhafiz, 300 000 Egyptian pounds (R280,000). A decision which is a big surprise for many football fans around the world.
According to SowetanLIVE, the Cairo giants did not waste time in giving the fines, which they did in a clear statement on their official website. They really were not playing games with the loss and took some serious action.
