Speaking to the club’s media department, Tawfik confirmed that Pitso is going nowhere as they look to dominate the continent and the domestic scene. He said:
“Amir Tawfik, head of Al Ahly’s transfers and marketing department, revealed the details of his meeting with Pitso Mosimane, Al Ahly's football first-team head coach. Tawfik announced that Mosimane will continue his current contract with the club, which lasts until the end of the 2021/22 season, without any pay raise.
"Tawfik added that Mosimane did not ask for any increase in his salary and that the club wants him to stay because Al Ahly is convinced with his ability to fulfil the goals and expectations of Al Ahly fans."

The former Masandawana tactician led the club in 64 matches and succumbed to five losses while collecting trophies such as the Champions League and an Egyptian Super Cup title.
Fans worried about Percy Tau's future if Pitso Mosimane leaves Al Ahly: "All the best"
In a previous story, Briefly News published that the timeline has been a frenzy ever since the news broke about Pitso Mosimane possibly leaving Al Ahly and fans are worried about Percy Tau.
The striker recently joined Al Ahly so he could play under coach Mosimane and now it seems like things will be different. Mosimane's contract discussions with Al Ahly did not go his way and reports stated that he's looking at leaving.
Percy Tau left Brighton so he could get some game time but that might not be possible if he plays under a different coach at Al Ahly.
"So Pitso didn't have a protection clause in his previous contract? That would be immature."
