‘We reject anyone who questions Mosimane’

Pitso Mosimane

Pitso Mosimane has received the support of a powerful ally after he was surprisingly criticised following Al Ahly's Cairo Derby win over Zamalek.

Last weekend, Mosimane masterminded a resounding victory over reigning Egyptian Premier League champions Zamalek when he guided his side to an impressive 5-3 win at the Cairo Stadium.

Despite the result, the former Mamelodi Sundowns boss received criticism from some quarters, including former player Emad Meteb who lamented that Al Ahly conceded two unanswered goals in the final ten minutes of the match.

However, Mosimane has unsurprisingly received the full support of those in power at the club and was recently the recipient of a public vote of confidence from board member Tarek Kandil.

"I was amazed by what was being said, and I felt as if a hidden force wanted to ruin our celebrations," Kandil told ONTime Sport TV h/t KingFut.

"We beat Zamalek in the derby 5-3, and in about 25 minutes we scored three goals. We produced some impressive football.

"We reject anyone who questions Mosimane. We have a respected technical staff and players at the highest level, and we aspire to reach the highest position in the Club World Cup."
