Al Ahly coach and former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane picked his first win as Al Ahly manager in his first game against Al Makowloon in the 31st edition of the Egypt Premier League.
The legendary coach compiled a list of 18 players after a training session at the Touch Stadium on the island.
“Mosimane was keen to stop playing more than once and to direct the players with some technical instructions for each of them,” ‘African Club of the Century’ Al Ahly posted on their official website.
