Pitso Mosimane has put an end to speculation surrounding his future after penning a new two-year contract with Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

Reigning African champions Al Ahly have confirmed that the club’s South African Head Coach Pitso Mosimane has signed a two-year contract extension that will see him remain in Cairo until the end of the 2023/24 season.

"Al Ahly SC announce the extension of Pitso Mosimane’s contract for two more years after what he achieved for the club," the Team of the Century announced in a statement on Wednesday.

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

Mosimane joined Al Ahly from Mamelodi Sundowns in 2020 and has taken charge of 83 matches thus far, winning two CAF Champions League and two CAF Super Cups as well as the Egyptian Cup title.

The 57-year-old's extension comes just over a month after he guided Ahly to a second consecutive bronze medal at the FIFA Club World Cup and with his side atop of the Egyptian Premier League standings after a 3-0 win over nearest rivals Pyramids on Tuesday.
