Pitso Mosimane is still feeling under pressure at Al Ahly despite winning back-to-back trophies not so long ago. The South African coach is reportedly heartbroken over the treatment he's received from fans, according to legendary goalkeeper Ahmed Shobier.

When 'Jingles' first arrived in Egypt, he made his mark and won the CAF Champions League. The following year, he did it again when Al Ahly faced Kaizer Chiefs in this year's final. Even though he's done well, some fans are still calling for him to be sacked.
