Al Ahly president fines coach Pitso Mosimane R281 000 for loosing this


After Al Ahly's Egyptian Super Cup loss to Tala'ea El-Gaish in 2020/21, president Mahmoud El Khatib punished head coach Pitso Mosimane, his staff, and players each 300 000 Egyptian pounds (R 281 000).

The Red Devils were considered favorites to win the domestic cup, which they would have done for the 12th time in club history.

Mosimane's team, on the other hand, lost 3-2 on penalties after a goalless draw after extra time, which did not satisfy Ahly president.

"After the disappointing performance in the Egyptian Super Cup on Tuesday, Mahmoud El Khatib, Al Ahly's president, decided to impose a 300,000 fine on Al Ahly players, director of football, and coaching staff, despite the great support that the team receives to achieve titles and meet the expectations of the fans," a statement on the club's official website read.

"In addition, the administrative and medical personnel will be liable to fines based on their wages."

On Saturday, when Al Ahly plays on ENPPI in the Egypt Cup Round of 16, Mosimane will be on the sidelines once more. The game will begin at 19:00.

Yesterday the 25th of September, Al Ahly played against ENPPI sport club and luckily they managed to beat it. Even though the score was little but as long as they won. Al Ahly managed to beat it to 1 and 0 for ENPPI.

Though they lost to El Gaish on Tuesday the 21st of September with a score of 3 to 2, they had a consolation match yesterday as they managed to win it.

Now we are looking forward to Al Ahly's next match on the CAF Champions League second preliminary round on the 15th of October, it will be playing against USGN, and many like me are curious to see which team will claim the match that day.

Which team do you think will win that match?
