Zamalek sporting director Amir Mortada Mansour has come out to hugely claim that Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane reached out to them intending to assume the coaching role.

Negotiations to renew Mosimane’s Al Ahly contract had stalled, until the two parties finally agreed to a two-year extension in March 2022.

However, Mansour claims Mosimane’s agent Moira Tlhagale approached them, seeking employment for the coach at one of Al Ahly’s fiercest rivals.

“Mosimane’s agent approached us through a middleman, she said there are problems with Al Ahly and as an agent, she was looking for potential jobs for Mosimane,” Amir told ONTime Sports as per Kingfut.

Had Mosimane succeeded in joining Zamalek, it would have been arguably the most bitter transfer in Egyptian football.

Having stayed at Al Ahly, Mosimane is on the verge of guiding the African kingpins to a third consecutive CAF Champions League title.

They beat ES Setif 4-0 in the first leg semi-final on Saturday, with the return bout away in Tunisia on May 14.

While it looks more promising on the continent, Al Ahly has been struggling on the domestic front.

They have failed to win in their last three Egyptian Premier League games, leaving them third on the table with 33 points.

They have, however, played three games fewer than leaders Zamalek (41), who they could overtake if they win all their outstanding matches.
