Pitso Mosimane signs 2 year contract extension with Al Ahly

Pitso Mosimane has extended his contract at Egyptian giants Al Ahly SC by two years, the club announced.

Mosimane will be taking home a whooping salary of R60million a year following the extension.

“Al Ahly are delighted to announce Pitso Mosimane has signed a contract extension with the club for two more years,” read part of the statement published on the club’s official website.

“The coach and his assistants signed the new contract, ensuring they will remain at the helm until 2024.”

“Mosimane and his assistants signed the new contract with the club to put to an end to all the rumours that were circulating during the previous period.”

This comes after Pitso led his team into impressively winning bronze for a second successive time at the Fifa Club World Cup in Qatar last month, beating Saudi Arabia’s Al-Hilal 4-0 in the playoff match.

Mosimane took charge of Al Ahly on September 30, 2020, becoming the first non-Egyptian African to manage the North African side.

Since his appointment, Al Ahly won back-to-back Caf Champions League titles, two Caf Super Cups, the Egypt Cup, and two Club World Cup bronze medals.
