By Chimezie Nebolisa

Saudi Arabia’s Al Ahli has appointed Pitso Mosimane as new head coach. The club were relegated last year and are currently seventh in the Saudi second division. Mosimane, a three-time CAF Champions league winner was announced as the new club coach on Saturday.

Mosimane has been in South Africa and Tanzania in the last few months conducting coaching masterclasses after he parted ways with Egyptian giants Al Ahly. The South African left the Egyptian side back in June after he spent nearly two years in charge of the Cairo giants.

During his 21-month tenure, Mosimane led the Red Devils to three Caf Champions League finals in a row, winning both the 2020 and 2021 editions of the competition.

He had also guided the team to two consecutive Fifa Club World Cup bronze medals and two Caf Super Cup victories, as well as an Egypt Cup title and an Egyptian Super Cup coronation.

Al Ahli were shockingly relegated from the Saudi Pro League for the first time in the club’s history after finishing 15th with just 32 points.

They have also experienced a poor start to their Yelo League campaign this season as they lie seventh in the standings with just eight points from five games.
