My departure was a shock to everyone at Al Ahly, Mosimane says
Former al ahly head coach Pitso Mosimane explained the reasons behind his departure from Al Ahly, stating that it was the right time.
Al Ahly had announced that they parted ways with Pitso Mosimane after spending nearly two years in charge.
During his 21-month tenure, Mosimane had 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 led the team to two consecutive fifa Club World Cup bronze medals, two CAF Super Cup victories, in addition to an Egypt Cup and an Egyptian Super Cup coronations.
However, after the club's recent poor run of results in the Egyptian Premier League, Mosimane has been under scrutiny with pundits and former players criticising the South African.
As a result, the club's official social media accounts revealed that Mosimane made the decision to step down from his role.
Mosimane opened up about his departure decision, claiming that it was a shock to everyone inside Al Ahly.
“I'm happy to take a break. I'm happy to wake up at 11 am and I'm happy that I'm not accountable to anybody at this point in time,” Mosimane said while speaking on Kaya959.
“I'll get back to coaching when I feel like I want to go back.
“Sometimes you have to take a step back. Big coaches like Pep Guardiola have done that. Carlo Ancelotti has done that. Zinedine Zidane has done that. He won three Champions League titles but he's not coaching now.
“It was a difficult decision to make. I left voluntarily. It was a shock to everyone at the club but I just felt it was the time to leave. I renewed my contract last year and I thought I would stay longer but every good thing comes to an end.”
