Pitso Mosimane departed for Al Ahly in tears as Mamelodi Sundowns supporters offered him an emotional send-off at OR Tambo on Thursday.

Mosimane was confirmed as the next Ahly head coach after his shock resignation from Sundowns on Wednesday morning after eight glittering years with the Tshwane giants.

The former Bafana Bafana boss won 13 major titles including five-league crowns and the CAF Champions League and has now moved on to the most decorated club in Africa.

Mosimane will sign a two-year contract with The Club of the Century upon his arrival on Friday ahead of his expected league debut on Sunday, but before his historic move, he received a hero's farewell from his former club's adoring supporters.
