Al Alhy and Pitso Mosimane reached an agreement to part ways.
Ahmoud El Khatib, the club’s president, held a meeting with Yasin Mansour, the chairman of Al Ahly FC, Hossam Ghaly, the club’s board member and the planning committee members to discuss Mosimane’s future with the club.
During the meeting, they all decided that he should continue his mission with Al Ahly as a result of the achievement he managed to accomplish during the previous period.
