Pitso: 'They have a right to criticise me'

Players Abroad

Pitso Mosimane remains undeterred by the consistent criticism labelled against him by some of Egypt's soccer legends.

Mosimane has faced a barrage of criticism in Egypt, especially after Al Ahly was beaten 2-0 by Waydad Casablanca during the Caf Champions League final played in Morocco recently.

Mosimane is set to meet the club's board over this weekend to discuss his future at the club among other things.

Mosimane is now back in Cairo after attending a coaching course in Morocco recently.

"Even if sometimes you win, they will always say we have seen these wins before, it’s not the first time.

"If you speak about the legends of Mamelodi Sundowns, you speak about Mambush Mudau, Raphael Chukwu, Roger Feutumba and Augustine Makalakalane.

"We have always been passing the ball even better than before, you know what I am trying to say.

"Chukwu will say I have scored many goals, Mambush will say I still have the record, Shalulile can score, but I have the record.

"It is the way it is, the legends have a right to say whatever they want to say," Mosimane insisted.

"So, the legends in Egypt have a right to criticise me.

"You must know some of the legends are my opposition, they are coaching other clubs and want to coach Al Ahly.

"Yes, they want to be where I am, and it’s not easy for me to coach because I am the first Sub-Saharan coach to be here.

"They always had European and South American coaches previously and now you bring this guy from South Africa.

"I mean, what has a South African won in international football, I am also under pressure because of my country.

"I can’t talk too much, but what needs to talk for me is to lift trophies, and we have done exceptionally well in that space."
