Pitso Mosimane is Accused in Egypt and Here is What is Being Said About Him

Coaching is one of the most difficult job, with all eyes on you and everyone want your head when things don't go in your favour, not to talk of coaching in a foreign country where you have to go extra mile in winning the supporters on your side, and that everyone fall for your style of play.

The pressure of coaching one of the biggest and well respected team is of high note, the team is always expected to command dominance. You are expected to win every game and every trophy.

Pitso Mosimane is one South African coach in a foreign land, coaching one of the biggest team in the continent AL Ahly of Egypt. The club is well known for playing attractive and attacking football over the years.

The Jingles have been criticized since his arrival at the club, either by a group of fans or former players who have been very vocal against the style of play under the guidance of Mosimane.

The Red Devils failed to register a win in their past three outings in the Egyptian Premier League, they drew 1 all against Ceramica Cleopatra this past weekend being their most recent disappointment.

The latest to have thrown a punch to the leadership of Mosimane is Ahmed Khoshary, he is a former player having played for the Egyptian giants between 1995 and 1999. Khoshary believes that the Jingles is selecting players he feels should not be at the club.

" I didn't understand the way Mosimane played against Ceramica Cleopatra," he said according to KingFut. The son of soil is being accused of relying on long balls rather than build up, something the team is not used to according to Ahmed Khoshary.

The former Red Devils player went on to question the spirit of players and their level of fitness, "Some starting XI players don't even deserve to be at the club. Right now, we look like a small club"

AL Ahly are seating second place and eight points behind Zamalek in the league standing, with three games in hand.

The Jingles is under fire I must say and things are not turning into his way, being accused of turning the club into a small club may distabilise the poor performance even worse, unless otherwise they turn things around in their coming games.

Poor performances has even led to the team president into calling an emergency meeting, Pitso was absent in the meeting where AL Khatib showed his dissatisfaction to the players about their level of efforts and determination.

Knowing how hard working Pitso is, he will for sure turn things around.
