Pitso Mosimane

Al Ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane has tested positive for the Covid-19, the club has confirmed.

The new Egyptian Premier League just got underway last weekend, with Mosimane's side picking up a 3-1 win over Misr Lel Makkasa.

The Red Devils have now confirmed that the former Mamelodi Sundowns head coach will self-isolate after testing positive for the virus.

The club's statement read: 'Al Ahly's head coach Pitso Mosimane tested positive for COVID-19. Mosimane will be subjected to the home isolation regime, set by the Ministry of Health.'

As a result, Mosimane will now miss Friday's league clash against Ghazl El Mahalla.
