Pitso Mosimane, who is likely to depart Saudi Arabian giants Al Ahli Jeddah, was rumored to have been approached by Moroccan giants Raja Club Athletic, but those rumors have been denied by the club.
Even though he led Al Ahli Saudi back into the Saudi Pro League and also led them to the Yelo League title, the South African strategist has been connected with a move from the club.
According to a report by iDiski Times, it is common knowledge that the club’s hierarchy would want to hire a European coach to lead them into the 2023/2024 season. Names such as Massimiliano Allegri, the manager of Juventus, are reportedly being considered for the position.
The president of the club, Walid Moaz, announced that a decision about the future of the coach will not be made until after the final league match against Al-Hazem; nevertheless, he also stated in a cryptic manner that “the ambition is greater.”
After Mosimane successfully clinched the league title this week, he took to social media to post a series of obtuse comments, one in which he declared, “mission accomplished” and another in which he said, “waiting for the next project.”
As soon as it became apparent that Mosimane was once again available for transfer, several major African clubs instantly began to be linked with his name. One of these clubs was Raja CA, which has won the CAF Champions League three times.
Despite being undefeated through the group stages (five victories and only one tie), they were eliminated from the Champions League by Al Ahly in the quarterfinal. The final score was a loss by a score of 2-0 on aggregate.
They have only won nine of their 26 games this season, which has led to uncertainty regarding the future of head coach Mondher Kebaier in the Botola Pro League. This uncertainty has placed doubt on the future of the team.
“The club didn’t go into talks with Pitso Mosimane in order for him to replace Tunisian Mondher Al-Kabir,” a spokesperson told Yallakora.
It is unknown what the future holds for South Africa’s most successful coach, who just claimed the 19th title of his historic career this week. Al Ahli play their final game on May 29, and it is also unknown what the future holds for Al Ahli.
