Al Ahly boss backs Mosimane


Al Ahly President El Khatib has backed coach Pitso Mosimane after rivals Zamalek won the Egyptian League title yesterday.

“We fully trust the coach, captain and our coaching, medical, administrative staff. You deserve to be honored for what you did in the last period (winning this year’s CAF Champions League) and we are working on that,” he said.

Zamalek were confirmed as League winners after beating El-Entang 3-0 at home last night, while Al Ahly were held to a 3-3 draw away at El Gouna.

This marks Zamalek’s 13th league title and their first one since the 2014/15 season.

Only six players from that squad are still among the Whites’ ranks: Mahmoud Gennesh, Mohamed Abogabal, Mohamed Abdelshafy, Tarek Hamed, Ayman Hefny and Youssef Obama.
